Proverbs 19

Pro 19:12  The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.
Pro 19:13  A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
Pro 19:14  House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
Pro 19:15  Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
Pro 19:16  He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
Pro 19:17  He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
Pro 19:18  Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.

The first part starts out with some practical advice, and then the next one and the last talk about parenting.  Foolish children are aggravating to parents.  I'm  not a parent but I can see that when I go places.  The parent has never taken to disciplining the child so the child misbehaves and embarrasses the parent. 

I watched a friend start to train her child recently as he's crawling and needs to learn the word "no."  He didn't like it very much and cried.  It was awful to watch, but it upset me far more than it upset him.  He was off and crawling again, and didn't repeat his behavior.
