The pressure on parents to raise perfect kids is enormous. This is also true in the church. I know because Lisa and I raised three of them, and they grew up in the church. The judgmental eyes on our children, and therefore on us, were all-seeing.
We were constantly on guard and frequently tempted to be embarrassed because of our kids.
But we chose to let them grow up, experiment, make mistakes, and find their own way... because we wanted them to grow up strong, free, and independent.
But oh my I could tell stories from the journey that got us here.
