Tip for Christian parents about child-rearing

Have you ever gotten frustrated with the ups and downs of child rearing? Does it seem to you that they will never get it; they will never learn to consistently do right. Have you ever wondered if all your effort was really worth it? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Most Christian parents have this thought – time and time again. The best answer was given to me by one of my beloved professors of Christian education some 50 years ago! His simple observation helped Evie and me to keep our equilibrium during the early years of child rearing. He said over and over again, “Remember, as Christian parents, our goal is not to rear godly children but godly adults!” That perspective makes all the difference in the world. Think about it the next time you feel like giving up.
