Is your child a blessing or a disgrace?
There is only one way to prevent disgracefulness.
I recently saw two young mothers in a coffee shop conversing over their brew while their two infants played together on the floor. Neither child could walk yet and they were given full reign of the coffee shop floor until they ended up blocking the coffee shop entrance. I doubt these moms were intentionally neglectful but were instead devoted to a new way of letting their kids explore the world—however, this conditions children to be entitled and self-centered.
Inconveniencing customers was not on the radar for these children or their mothers, but Proverbs 29:15 says, “a child left to himself disgraces his mother.” Let’s not disgrace our kids, ourselves, or our God by creating narcissistic kids.
