Proverbs 27:17 (NLV) - Iron is made sharp with iron, and one man is made sharp by a friend.
Something else that can effect the maturity of a male adolescent is the following:
- How the parents conduct themselves in front of the child in the event there's a misunderstanding. Do they feel the need to yell, become physically and verbally violent or can the interact like two people that were once in love.
- The manner in which the mother refers to the deceased, divorced, one night stand or unknown father, when she's upset.
- Finally, if you've seriously prayed over your child while they were still in the womb, after they were born and when the little guy made a little mistake in elementary school.
Lord, please grant every young man with a positive male role model in their life's, a forgiving heart and a desire to be a loving father, mentor or asset to the community too ...
