Analog Parents of Digital Children – Al Mohler comments on the recent New York Times article about media issues our kids are facing. Key sentence from Mohlner – Parents of adolescents and young people cannot afford to be stuck in an analog world with outdated expertise, even as their offspring are digital natives living in an increasingly distracted and dangerous world.
From the NYT article – This sentence from the article is particularly haunting: “He [Sean] says he sometimes wishes that his parents would force him to quit playing and study, because he finds it hard to quit when given the choice.” Are they listening?
The Retreat from Marriage – Al Mohler reviews two books and the trend of America away from marriage. Our children will not be unaffected by this. Parents and the church must give an excellent apologetic for why marriage is good.
The Desiring God blog points out that Paul’s exhortation to imitate him and others like him is based in a desire that the Philippians not walk away from the Lord. Sounds like a good reason to say the same thing to our children. Follow my example and the example of good people in our church.
