Christian parents are called to raise their children in a way that is honoring to God. Often, this calling leads parents to live a life that looks different than the lives of the typical American family. Sometimes, these differences may make kids feel isolated or alone in their beliefs.
Fortunately, they are not alone. Regularly interacting with a group of other Christian families can help reassure kids that they are not alone in the pursuit of Christian values and a Christian worldview.
How Seeing the Values of Other Christian Families Can Help Kids Feel More Connected to Their Faith
As you interact with other parents who have kids in the same age group as yours, you would be wise to routinely discuss strategies that will help all of your children build and promote a biblical worldview. When our kids see other families aggressively living out the teachings of Christ, it legitimizes what you teach and how you live in your home.
In today’s pluralistic society, it is easy for our kids to think that their family is the odd family out—especially when they are the only ones refraining from certain carnal or even sinful activities. Collaborating with other Christian parents will give you and your kids allies that will help promote the legitimacy of your faith in your children’s eyes while exhibiting a lifestyle congruent with the abundant life.
