    Listen . . . to the discipline of your father.

    Prov. 1:8.

    Jehovah has assigned parents—not grandparents or anyone else—the privilege of raising their children in the truth.

    (Prov. 31:10, 27, 28)

    Still, parents who do not know the local language may need help to reach their children’s heart.

    Arranging for such help need not mean abdicating their spiritual responsibility; rather, it can be part of bringing up their children

    “in the discipline and admonition of Jehovah.”

    (Eph. 6:4)

    For example, parents may ask elders in the congregation for suggestions on conducting family worship and for help in providing good association for their children. Also, they may invite other families to join them in family worship from time to time.

    Further, many young people thrive under the influence of spiritually balanced companions who may, for example, accompany them in the ministry and share with them in wholesome recreation.—Prov. 27:17.
