In a culture of political correctness, parenting is no easy task. As Christian parents, our task of raising godly children has certainly changed from a few years ago, much less when we were kids ourselves! Parenting today’s kids and adolescents is certainly anything but routine!
The Absolutes of Manhood
In today’s world, it’s difficult to even have an intelligent conversation about manhood. Why? There are new terms, new standards, new protocols that many of us are still needing clarity on and to become familiar with. In fact, many of the terms being tossed around need to be defined and agreed upon before we can truly communicate on this topic.
Fluidity has overtaken the conversation about boyhood and manhood. Absolutes have disappeared. But more than that, our culture has become ripe and ready for systemic discouragement of young men.
Are we emasculating our boys before they even have a chance to grow into strong men? What we can do about it?
The crisis of manhood extends beyond political correctness. We’ve messed with God’s ecosystem. But somehow, the creation thinks they have a better idea for doing and defining life than the creator. And that’s a disaster waiting to happen.
