Anyone can birth a child, but not everyone can be a parent. Children are heavily influenced by their parents, the atmosphere in the family, and the environment. When parents maintain perfect harmony at home, it is the most effective way to keep children out of demonic oppression. When the husband and wife keep and obey God’s Word, the children will have fewer battles to fight.
The individual behavior of each parent towards one another also influences how the rest of the family behaves. A wife’s submission to her husband guides the children, especially the young women, to know how to submit and be sober. Love in the family blocks evil spirits from entering the home. Women are the owners and keepers of homes, and by so doing, the children in the home learn from their mother how to obey God.
Wives who are obedient to their husbands inspire the rest of the family members to be obedient also. Submission means that a husband and wife are close, understand each other, and have the same mind and will. Similarly, husbands should be the source of their wives’ joy, peace and confidence. You cannot allow anything to separate you from your wife.

The Role of Parents
Demons cannot enter the lives of children who obey their parents in the Lord and honor their father and mother. There is a promise attached to children’s being obedient to their parents. Children who obey their parents live long and prosper on earth. It is the duty of parents to tell their children their responsibilities and make sure that they obey. Parents are to behave lovingly toward their children and make sure that they rebuke and correct them in the right way.
Parents should be good examples for their children through the lives they live. If you do not want your children to live immoral lives, then you must not allow the devil to drag you into immorality. Sin is contagious and can spread to unborn generations.
Also, on the occasion of correcting a child, parents should be moderate and reasonable. Your discipline must not convey extreme anger at your children. Otherwise, you would have wasted your time trying to correct them. This could create a distance between you and your children, thereby allowing the devil a chance to take advantage.

The Sins of the Fathers
If you want to see your children do well, you must endeavor to deal with the consequences of your past properly. Sin is a debt to Satan. Therefore, you must not allow the devil to transfer these consequences to your children. Look at how the sin of Ahab and Jezebel became an evil investment that transferred to their children. Their children eventually died because Ahab did not settle the debt of the consequences of his sin properly when he was alive.
Evil transfers can cause born and unborn children unimaginable suffering. It can close doors to timely marriages for the children and open doors to divorce, separation, and all manner of marital problems. There is no sort of wickedness that evil carry-over is not capable of doing. It can also keep them out of God’s plan, progress and cause them to struggle without success in their lives.
It is very important that as a father or mother, when you break the hedge of your protection through sin, you must not allow your sin to put your family in the bondage of Satan. Otherwise, your children would suffer terrible consequences. Repent of all the sins you have committed before and after your marriage. Confess and forsake them, and invite Jesus to take away every consequence of your past sins. Then make sure that you guide your children in the way of the Lord.
