As you faithfully protect your children from today’s culture, Trace Embry reminds you not to neglect your own health.
With all the fuss about what our culture is doing to the emotional and spiritual health of our kids today, I think it’s time we take a good hard look at what our culture is doing to parents.
Caring For Us
It could be argued that the stress levels today, particularly for parents, are unlike any other time in our history. It wasn’t supposed to be this stressful.
Parenting can be compared to an airline emergency. We must put our oxygen masks on before we tend to the masks of our children. In our world, we must secure our own spiritual and emotional health before we can provide the same for our children.
Are you getting much-needed rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation? Spend time with other parents and compare notes. Be encouraged by one another. These moments may be just what we need to help reduce the stress of today’s parenting odyssey.
