Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the
thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to his kids.  After
creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.  And the first
thing he said to them was: "Don't."

"Don't what?" Adam replied.

"Don't eat the forbidden fruit."

"Forbidden fruit?  Really?  Where is it?"

"It's over there," said God, wondering why he hadn't stopped after making
the elephants.

A few minutes later God saw the kids having an apple break and he was
angry. "Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" the first parent asked.
"Uh-huh," Adam replied.

"Then why did you?"

"I don't know," Adam answered.

God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.  But there is a
reassurance In this story.  If you have persistently and lovingly tried
to give them wisdom and they haven't taken it don't be hard on yourself.
If God had trouble handling children, what makes you think it would be a
piece of cake for you?
