PUTTING A PREMIUM ON WISDOM – Today, on License to Parent, Trace Embry bursts a few parenting bubbles with some words to the wise.
If you’re like many parents, you may think that just because your child can rebuild a computer or gets good grades, that he’s on the golden pathway to success. But even teens with high IQs can still struggle in the action and consequence part of their thinking process. Knowledge and intelligence don’t always equate to wisdom. The internet can make anyone look knowledgeable; however, it’s in the everyday application of that knowledge and intelligence that exposes one’s level of wisdom. Knowledge and intelligence requires no moral component. Wisdom, however, is all about morals. Hitler, Ted Bundy, and Bernie Madoff were all highly intelligent and knowledgeable. What they lacked was wisdom. So camp out with your kids in Proverbs and put a premium on wisdom.
