Hard to Believe

I recently became a father of twins, so that now makes three children. In becoming a Daddy I now pay more attention to parenting.

While doing some studying and reading this evening my wife and I stumbled upon this show on TLC. It’s called “Outrageous Kids Parties,” I have never been so appalled in my life as I am now.

First, let me say that I consider my family to be blessed to live within a country where we can enjoy our family and our children, but I find it ridiculous that we let our children rule our households. If you haven’t watched this program, I would suggest you do so.

This just proves to me that we, as parents, have instilled a mindset of greed within our children. It doesn’t help that they have already been so inundated with consumerism that they can’t see straight.

I suggest one thing, let’s teach our children the value of God, family, and a strong work ethic not this giveme giveme mentality. The scripture teaches us that if we should train up a child in the way they should go in the end they shall not depart from it. Let’s teach these new generation of leaders the correct things in life
