Back after a long gap without any new posts here on TBTG website, we are happy to present to you some cool new parenting tips in short video clip formats in Malayalam language. This is a new venture from the Angels’ Army team. These are excerpts from the talk show Madhuramozhi which discusses various topics related to parenting from a catholic point of view.

Kids inside Church

The very first video in this series, given above, talks about the concern over the playful behavior of kids inside churches. This is a pretty common sight during Holy Mass, at least in churches in Kerala. What all thoughts come to your mind when you see kids playing around a lot inside church? As a parent, what do you feel about your own little kid roaming around inside the church catching everyone’s attention? See the video clip above to know more.

Sterilization Vs Recanalization

In this second video clip, a couple discusses the conception and birth of their fifth child after recanalization operation. After having 4 children, the couple initially decides to do sterilization and stops any further pregnancy. What prompts them to do a re-think and do recanalization? Watch the above video clip to know more.

Preparation for Marriage

The importance of preparing for marriage is discussed in this third video clip from Madhuramozhi. How do you prepare for your own wedding? Are you more concerned on the physical aspects of marriage like the grand marriage ceremony, the long VIP guest list, the grand feast etc? Or even long before you decide your life partner, do you even start to pray for your would-be spouse and his/her family? Watch this third video clip above to know how some catholic couples are preparing spiritually very well in advance for their marriage and the blessings they receive due to this.

Prayer For Parenting A Child Properly

Prayer For Parenting A Child Properly

Lord, I submit myself to You. I realize that parenting a child in the way You would have me to is beyond my human abilities. I know I need You to help me. I want to partner with You and partake of Your gifts of wisdom, discernment, revelation, and guidance. I also need Your strength and patience, along with a generous portion of Your love flowing through me.

Teach me how to love the way You love. Where I need to be healed, delivered, changed, matured, or made whole, I invite You to do that in me. Help me to walk in righteousness and integrity before You. Teach me your ways, enable me to obey Your commandments and do only what is pleasing in Your sight.

May the beauty of Your Spirit be so evident in me that I will be a godly role model. Give me the communication, teaching, and nurturing skills that I must have. Make me the parent You want me to be and teach me how to pray and truly intercede for the life of this child.

Lord, You said in Your Word, “Whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive” (Matthew 21:22). In Jesus’ name I ask that You will increase my faith to believe for all the things You’ve put on my heart to pray for concerning this child. Amen.

10 Guidelines To Protect Your Child From Sexual Abuse

Protect Your Child From Sexual Abuse

Safety on our surroundings decay day by day, not even the children are not safe. We entrust our children in faith to the protection of the Lord all the ways they go. But still it is important that the children are well informed of the traps.

Many parents, thinking that sexual talks are forbidden before children, do not caution them. Healthy knowledge and awareness of sexual behavior is to be handed on to children. They must be aware of what should be done and should not be done.

Ten guidelines to protect your child from sexual abuse

1. Make sure your children know that it is not safe to trust all adults. Tell them that most adults can be trusted, but there are some adults who want to hurt children. Remind them of this every time you are emphasizing the importance of body privacy. Help your children develop a healthy suspicion of older children or adults who want to become overly affectionate with them. Remember, child molesters are more likely to be successful in seducing uninformed and naive children than children who display a healthy suspicion of those who show too much interest in them.

2. Periodically quiz your child about what happens during these times when they are left in the care of other people.

3. Teach your children to stay away from people they don’t know. Caution them against approaching a car driven by a stranger. Warn them to never get into that car, even if the man says, “Your mother has sent me to pick you up for her.” Don’t allow your children to accept gifts from strangers. Explain to them that child molesters often use gifts to lure children into a special relationship with them.

4. Don’t allow your children to be alone on the street after dark. Teach them to look out for strange cars or people who show up in their play areas. Tell them to remember their descriptions and stay away from them. Ask them to bring these cars and people to your attention.

5. Since molesters are often relatives or trusted friends, it’s extremely important for you to never leave your child alone with someone unless you are absolutely sure that person is totally responsible and trustworthy. You can’t afford to make the mistake of assuming they are. You must know that person is safe for your children to be with.

6. Frequently caution your small children to never let anybody touch them underneath their clothing, unless they are helping them go to the bathroom or take a bath. And even when this happens, it should always be with your knowledge and permission. These steps are good precautions.

7. Be sure your child knows that no one should ask them to take part in any sexual activity. Make your children promise to tell you or someone in authority whenever they have been in appropriately touched or abused.

8. Locate any areas in the children’s environment where molestation is likely to occur and bring those areas to your children’s attention, including: back stairways, elevators, alleys, abandoned buildings, wooded areas, and public restrooms. Warn your child to avoid these areas. Never send your child into a public restroom by himself of herself. These are places where predators wait for unsuspecting children.

9. Tell your children there is safety in numbers. Once they start school, encourage them to walk to and from school with their friends.

10. If your children have to be home alone, caution them to keep the doors and windows locked at all times. They should admit no visitors. Teach them to answer the phone in such a way that the caller will not know they are alone. For example, teach them to say, “My mother is not home right now.” Tell them to say, “My mom or my dad can’t come to the phone right now.” That’s true. Explain to them that they haven’t lied by implying that you are home, but neither have they exposed themselves to violation by saying Mom and Dad aren’t home. They are simply telling the caller that Mom or Dad can’t come to the phone right now.
