PARENTING FOR SOCIETY – Goal setting is important. But what happens if we set the wrong goals? Trace Embry looks at life goals we set for our kids today on License to Parent.
As we raise our kids, are we building good character into them for their benefit only, or should we have a greater societal goal in mind? Many parents raise their children with the goal of good grades, good colleges, good careers, and good families. Of course, these are noble goals. However, shouldn’t we raise our kids with an even greater goal in mind? What if we brought up our children with not just their particular welfare in mind, but with the welfare of all of society. Teaching our kids, from a young age, the joy of serving others will make them better candidates for career opportunities; better husbands and wives; better moms and dads; and better contributors to society at large–making the world for our grandkids a better place to live.
