It seems that everyone has a tip, or life hack, for raising kids today. There are also many schools of thought for parenting, and it’s not uncommon that the contradict each other.
How are we supposed to know what advice we should or shouldn’t follow? With so many options out there, is there one single guide to help?
Filtering Parenting Advice Through the Lens of the Bible
I was told that about 120,000 books have been written about raising kids. With so much parenting advice to choose from, how does the wise parent discern the truth about raising healthy kids? As I’ve often said, we don’t need Ph.D.’s in child-psychology to be good parents.
Though so many of those 120,000 books have proved to be flawed to one degree or the other, there is one book that can never be proved deficient or outdated. Of course, that’s the Bible. I have no problem with parenting books. Many are helpful for the times we live in. But always filter them through what Scripture has already said about raising kids.
