Times change, trends fade, and everything we thought we knew is gone. Parenting is not immune to these changes.
In order to be effective parents, we need to understand the time that we live in and adjust our methods accordingly. Of course, this must not be at the expense of our Godly principles.
How Parenting Methods Must Evolve
Scripture says the sons of Issachar were men who understood their times and knew what to do. Times are continually changing, therefore the methods of parenting our kids must change with them. But, let’s not confuse changing methods with changing principles. Our Godly principles must never change if we are going to stay true to Christ and expect our kids to grow up with Godly values.
Just think about all the things our kids are tempted with today—things that we didn’t have to deal with. How would we have handled all of it without adequate supervision and accountability? Supervision and accountability are the two things we’ll need to shore up to be effective parents in today’s world.
