    Wow!very awesome!this is pure wisdom.reading proverbs is an daily requirement for my children. You can 't go wrong sharing this with your children, It backs up what we are supposed to be teaching them.They may not believe us all the time but Surely they will fear the word of God as this proverb tells us .leaving the child alone will only make them woarse and hell bound.
