There is an old proverb that says, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Prov. 2:26. Jewish Publication Society translation). Yet many have believed they followed that advice, only to discover when the child became an adult that he (or she) had departed from it completely. They think that Solomon meant training as one would a dog, by teaching a child to do certain things, enforced by a system of rewards for performance and punishment for disobedience. But what almost no one understands is the difference between a dog's brain and a child's MIND. The human brain is accompanied by a spirit in connection with it. This human spirit enables a human to THINK - to REASON - to CALCULATE - to MAKE DECISION. Animals, by contrast. are equipped with instinct. Now understand the difference!
