Indeed, Brother Mayor. Also, as advocates of First Time Obedience
, we routinely go over Christian Children expectations (Deuteronomy 21:18-21). Further, the children understand that their temporary discomfort is nothing to the lasting embarrassment and disappointment their parents will have to endure should they disobey. We talk about what it means to be attention whores when all attention should be on the Baby Jesus. And we have wonderful discussions regarding feeling warm today when the price for such selfish extravagance is an eternity of roasting in the Lake of Fire. It's an enriching learning experience for the children, and they know very well the importance of their obedience.
