They Call Me Dad. At what age should we discontinue “spanking” our children? I think from the ages 1 – 13, or during the adolescent years. The Hebrew word translated “child” in Proverbs 22:6 is nāʿar and means a boy, lad, youth, retainer.
Dad is the leader of the family, not the driver of the family. The Lord has ordained and anointed this to be. The father sets the climate of the home by leading.
