2 Timothy 3:12-17

Yes, and all who desire to live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Did you notice that this scripture says "and that from CHILDHOOD you have known the Holy scriptures"?
If our children are going to grow up to be wise for salvation, then we need to start from birth, or now if you haven't started yet. This says, "CONTINUE" in the things you have learned. In order to continue, you have to have already started and that's where we as parents come in.
We have to get our children off to the right start.
It is a big responsibility but that is what God tells us to do, and as parents, there is no more important thing that our children's salvation anyways.
I myself have not been able to always read our scriptures everyday, and I fall very short of being the kind of parent scripture tells us to be, but I can start new tomorrow and try to make this the priority that it should be.
Lets all try to implement more scripture into our daily lives with our children.
Our children are supposed to tie the scriptures around their necks, and most children won't just automatically read their bible every day, so we need to help them out!
If we read scriptures everyday to our kids then we also get some scripture, so if time is a big issue, then do it together!!!!
Good luck!!!
