    But many times in this modern world the influence from the media and the general lapsing morality is lessening the influence.

    The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world?
    Homeschool for everyone.

    Our God is the Sovereign King of the universe, and He has blessed mothers with an awesome responsibility.


    Blessings on the hand of women!

    Angels guard its strength and grace,

    In the palace, cottage, hovel,

    Oh, no matter where the place;

    Would that never storms assailed it,

    Rainbows ever gently curled;

    For the hand that rocks the cradle

    Is the hand that rules the world.



    Infancy's the tender fountain,

    Power may with beauty flow,

    Mother's first to guide the streamlets,

    From them souls unresting grow--

    Grow on for the good or evil,

    Sunshine streamed or evil hurled;

    For the hand that rocks the cradle

    Is the hand that rules the world.



    Woman, how divine your mission

    Here upon our natal sod!

    Keep, oh, keep the young heart open

    Always to the breath of God!

    All true trophies of the ages

    Are from mother-love impearled;

    For the hand that rocks the cradle

    Is the hand that rules the world.



    Blessings on the hand of women!

    Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,

    And the sacred song is mingled

    With the worship in the sky--

    Mingles where no tempest darkens,

    Rainbows evermore are hurled;

    For the hand that rocks the cradle

    Is the hand that rules the world.

    Parents have a great deal of mental and physical control over their kids until they are exposed to the world more, after that nobody has real control over a child once they go out into the world. The only exceptions I have seen are with kids who are dependent of other for their care and even then the control can't be too complete because this control is based on their mental maturity.

    You can't control how someone will turn out, no matter who you are to them.

    a mother is the first woman in a man's life and she's always there for him.

    sometimes she's the last woman in his life. she loves him no matter what

    happens. that's what a mama does. not all mothers are like that. some

    women just aren't motherly. they don't have that mothering instinct.

    You can't make anyone do or be anything, you can love and guide them and hope for the best. Teach them the way, show them, be an example...

    Rich source of goodness and rich source of illusion itself to forgive sin from the son of God, for countless blessings inspire the borderline between new and perfect life of son where either of parents controls inequity to get love of GOD.
    Father, your love never ceases. Never. Though we spurn you, ignore you, disobey you, you will not change. Our evil cannot diminish your love. Our goodness cannot increase it. Our faith does not earn it anymore than our stupidity jeopardizes it. You don’t love us any less of we fail. You don’t love us any more if we succeed.
    Your love never ceases.
    He is our maker, our parent. We are His idea. His face. His hands. We are Him. Look deeply into the face of every human being on earth, and you will see His likeness. Though some appear to be distant relatives, they are not. GOD has no cousins, only children.

    If she controls him, then he isn't the perfect man, but a mama's boy.

    A boy needs his father. If he doesn't have him, the sad reality is he will forever be searching for him. Good mothers do good things, and God can do miraculous things in single-parent families though.

    What is a "perfect man". As a Christian there has only been one perfect man in history.

    I'm guessing. I really don't know I'm 27 yr old young lady who tries to be kind but do have limits and I do as daddy taught he was always even when he worked and mother was at home provided most care to me and at times he was single dad working thankfully at time only one income was needed. And I had siblings at points. Daddy did stuff as my mother's idea other then driving around in blazer or van was back handing me shrugs.

    He's a font of misplaced rage. Name your cliché; Mother held him too much or not enough, last picked at kickball, late night sneaky uncle, whatever. Now he's so angry moments of levity actually cause him pain; gives him headaches. Happiness, for that gentleman, hurts.

    First, there are no perfect person. Especially men lol
    Second, all in one according to the situation. In some situations it should be full control, in some we must let go completely and give him the opportunity to resolve issues on their own. Somewhere just need unobtrusive supervision. Very individual. There is no one solution.

    But the control is welded through modeling, not direction. Modeling while providing acceptance is the only control that works.

    I think control is not necessarily a good word. Sons (& daughters) learn from the example set by their parents. I have one son and I personally think he turned out to be a fine young man.I constantly get feedback from family & friends about what an amazing man he has become. He had a lot of health issues as a child and nearly died several tinmes. He & I are quite close as a result of spending so much time in the hospital. His health issues left him with some learning disability but we encouraged him every step of the way and he has become a successful adult who worked his way up the ladder from scrubbing floors to an executive position. I think any "child" learns from what happens in their own & friends homes. If they are constantly around people who are respectful they will become respectful. But if they are around abuse, they will think it is natural and unless exposed to sometihng different, they will follow that path.

    I believe for the most part a lot of control. Their example and means to support the child make a huge difference.

    I have taught him (or tried to) to be a gentleman but at his age...it's nearly impossible for me to control anything he says or does. It drives me crazy....I just want him to turn out to be a good man that knows how to treat a woman. I have about 4 yrs left to try to teach him things but he doesn't listen to me very well these days since he's a teenager. LOL
