With all the craziness in today’s culture, what are parents to do?
We encourage wise discipline. Here’s what that looks like.
It’s no secret that I have high expectations for our kids. But at the same time, we have to realize the world they live in. It’s a world that expects little more of them than youthful folly. Especially for Christian parents, it’s easy to freak out when one of our kids is caught viewing or engaging in something that we would have been shamed and absolutely crucified for.
I’m not saying that appropriate consequences aren’t in order. All I’m saying is that our over-emotional reaction to our kid’s moral faux pas is more likely to exasperate the situation than if we calmly exercised the appropriate discipline and even empathized with our kid’s plight to navigate a culture determined to pollute their hearts and minds.
