How does a parent train up a child

in the values of the Upside-down Kingdom of Jesus – other-worldly humility and other-worldly love?  How does any parent raise humble, loving kids?

The parent needs a contagious humility and love, because the conscience is reached through humility and love.  The parent who reaches a child’s conscience, is loving and humble ENOUGH to be the chief confessor as s/he attempts to be the chief accuser/enforcer.
