It's Different

Being a Christian Parent is more different than not. This is mostly obvious right?

In our family’s experience we discover that our values are looked at as being old-fashioned or over-protective.  Does this stop us from proceeding to strive at raising a godly family? No.

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” - Romans 12:2 NLT

As Christians we are told to no conform to the customs of the world, so why would that be different as parents?

We will be different from those that are not Christ followers. We will have different values and different morals. Even within Christian circles there will be differences. This is where it becomes important to teach biblical truths.

One family may ban TV completely from their home due to the negative influences and another may just limit what is allowed to be watched. One family may ban all secular music and another may ban all music that isn’t approved by the parents first. There are extremes and I can’t tell you if they are right or wrong. What I can say is that if you take a stand with your children; make sure you have a Biblical stance that cannot be twisted.
