So, my question to you is, can we encourage our children and keep them from becoming prideful and self focused?

Great article… this portion spoke to me…

It is not  our calling to "raise Godly children".
It is our calling to be authentic believers and live out the gospel before our children. It is our calling to nurture our children, instruct and guide them, love them, pray for them, share God's Word with them,  and share the gospel with them!  God is the only one who can work in a child's heart and change him (or anyone) into a godly person.  His Spirit draws them, opens their eyes, and changes and matures them. It is a process that we can't control.
