It Is Better for Children to Learn That They Are Not the Center of the Universe
I Have Duties Outside of Being a Parent
These Duties Do Not Contradict What I Am Called to as a Parent
I have yet to find a verse that commands me to make sure my children have a balanced diet, are involved in extracurricular activities, and are well socialized. Now these are wonderful things that I strive for, but I often need to remind myself to not feel guilty for taking something from my children that I was never commanded to give them. According to the Bible, my success as a parent is measured by my faithfulness to raise my children in the discipline and teaching of the Lord, and this is something, but God’s grace, I can do anywhere.
