Children are resilient and they are interested in both parents because both parents have genetic ties that affect who they are biologically and psychologically.
Train a child in the way he should go,
and when his is old, he will not turn from it.
Do not move an ancient boundary stone
or encroach on the fields of the fatherless,
for their defender is strong;
He will take up their case against you.
To you, O men, I call out;
I raise my voice to all mankind.
You who are simple, gain prudence;
you who are foolish, gain understanding.
Now then, my sons, listen to Me;
Blessed are those who keep My ways,
Listen to My instruction and be wise; Do not ignore it.
Blessed is the man who listens to Me,
watching daily at My doors,
waiting at my doorway.
For whoever finds Me finds life
and receives favor from the Lord.
But whoever fails to find Me harms himself;
all who hate Me love death.
