Ken Wytsma :: Are we to blame for how our kids turn out?

  • Even God’s kids (Adam and Eve) didn’t live perfect lives, so how much responsibility to we bear as parents for how our kids turn out? “To say, as parents, we could do better [than God] or be perfect, would be an attainable bar that would tyrannize us.” We’ll be tyrannized by the unattainable bar both while we raise our kids and after we’ve raised them, when we start to wonder what we could have done differently. “What we really want is not law-based parenting, but grace-based parenting.”
