While it would be easy to decry “those people” involved in the current college admissions, for those of us with children, it’s a good time to reflect on our own parenting. What are our goals for children? In what ways are we working towards those goals? In what ways might we be sabotaging our own goals? For Christians, it’s always good to ask what heart idols (things I love more than God) might be submarining my parenting? Might I have some of the same loves (idols) that those involved in the college admissions scandal are displaying? Kara Powell clearly articulates what should be the goal of Christian parenting. In the linked article, which appeared in Christianity Today, she helps us answer some of the above questions and could help many of us set a new direction in our parenting or re-set a direction that has steered off course.
