We all regret our past mistakes, but do you know what is worse?
Allowing them to affect the future of your child.
In a day when kids need supervision and boundaries most, why would so many parents give their kids such long leashes? Among a myriad of other reasons, the guilt of their own past is one of the biggest reasons. Many parents today are products and by-products of the cultural and sexual revolution of the 1960s.
Since that time sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll were virtually synonymous with the teen years. Consequently, parents who have since committed, or recommitted, their lives to Christ are having a tough time implementing and enforcing boundaries on their kids for fear of being hypocritical. Get over it! You can’t undo the past. Don’t let your past ruin your child’s future.
