Hillie saidNo text book or manual to raising healthy mini people. Pray that between your parenting skills, pressure of society and the influence of the community in which u live is a trifecta winning ticket.
There are tons of books on raising healthy children, many of them available at these things called libraries, and even more at these weird places called bookstores. Prayer will not bring you parenting skills and if you are praying for parenting skills, you'd best be advised to not have kids.
I have friends who have children and the ones who seem to be best at it waited, until they were over 30. Mostly so they were both more grounded and more mature, plus they also would have the life experience and money to be better parents. The actual job of raising a child is a commitment that I think is deeper than just the act of making a child. So many "baby daddies" just stick it in and pay child support, but are not doing anything to raise these children, thus we have generations of maladjusted boneheads walking around.
