Parent Strong

The spread of more and more electronic gadgets in the marketplace allowing easier access to the cyber verse by teens has caused young people to dismiss standing on their own two feet and ‘heeding’ the taunts and catcalls of the crowd, hounding them into not only suicidal thoughts--but actions.

The best protection? A firm foundation in Jesus Christ--and His Word--as modeled in the home. It is the h-o-m-e that has been authorized to be the ultimate ‘strengthening center’ for children and teens alike; and parents are charged with the responsibility to raise up the young ones under their care to a confident adulthood. Not the church. Not para-church ministries…BUT the home.

What is a parent to do to help their children to counteract the negatives being tossed at them from a society bent upon selfishness, peer pressure, and evil? Simple: Parent Strong! Teach a child how to strengthen their minds in the love of Christ, and give them His vision of how God sees them. It’s up to y-o-u, parents!

The Bible is full of examples of young people with a vision of God’s plan for their lives. Daniel. David. The prophet Samuel. The three Hebrew men. Queen Esther. Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus Christ. Solomon. John, the beloved apostle. Each of these individuals--as teens--were used by God. Their parents taught each of these young people one thing; listen for God and ignore the negative from society.

Children model in society what they see and hear their parents modeling in their own living rooms. Your teens know their way around your workplace based upon what their hear you--parent--gossiping about at home. They know your workplace gossip by heart! Who, on the job is their own ‘man’ or ‘woman’, and who are following ‘the workplace trends’ of drugging, drinking, and cheating. Parents who actively model faith and holiness ‘raise up’ mentally strong children who are more than capable of standing on their own two feet and being leaders rather than followers.

Parents: Don’t whine! Raise your children to be a real-time warriors, instead of a part-time cyber-lemmings. There is life beyond the Iphone, video game, and social networking page. It’s never too late to ‘Parent Strong’!
