THE PERFECT STORM – Here’s Trace Embry, Founder and Executive Director of Shepherd’s Hill Academy, a Christ-centered residential program for troubled teens. And this is License to Parent.
I’ve seen many cultural changes over the past decade or so that have made how we do parenting look vastly different from the way I was raised. The biggest change took place when the internet exploded on the scene at about the same time political correctness ran amok. This resulted in a combination of an over-exposed and hyper-sexualized youth culture and a generation of parents who no longer felt they had the freedom to exercise proper biblical discipline on behalf of their children. Add to this the busyness of an overly-committed pursuit of the American dream, parents now face a generation of young people who too often feel the need to cut themselves simply to feel justified.
