For parents, it can be easy to look at your children as perfect little angels. While every parent may want this to be true, this simply is not the way things are in this sinful world.
This is why it is important for parents to avoid being oblivious to sin in the lives of their children. While assuming the worst in our kids can be unhealthy, always assuming the very best can also be damaging.
Why Parents Must Not Be Oblivious to Sin in the Lives of Their Children
Unfortunately, It is true that many parents today are oblivious to all the possible sin in their children’s lives. A great deal of us don’t even entertain the idea that our kids have significant struggles with sin at all.
I might sound pessimistic, but before you throw a party when your kid brings home all A’s on their report card, you should consider that 80% of children today cheat. If you’re proud of your daughter wearing a purity ring, consider that alternate types of sexual sin are on the rise. And if you still believe that your teen has navigated public school or the Internet without viewing sexual explicit material, then you may also still naively believe that they wouldn’t purposely hide it from you if they had seen it.
Moms and Dads need to ask themselves how they would have managed today’s mixed up morality and growing temptations if they were a teenager in 2017. In light of this, let’s consider how we can adjust the way we parent to better raise these children who are growing up in the American culture of today.
