New studies show parents are spending more time with their children. And teens that spend more time with their parents are happier and have a higher sense of self-esteem. That’s the good news. When it comes to passing on moral and spiritual principles, however, many parents are hoping these responsibilities will be picked by the church, teachers, or elsewhere. This, according to Dr. Tim Kimmel, is the wrong approach.
One of the major goals of his new book, Connecting Church&Home (Randall House) is to help parents step up their game when it comes to being the primary influencer in their children’s lives. “Parents want their children to grow up and become responsible,” says Kimmel. He believes too many parents try to sub-contract the spiritual heavy lifting to the so-called professionals at church. This “consumer mentality” has permeated many adult spectators showing up on Sunday morning. Kimmel encourages a more deliberate approach to parenting, one where parents are more intentional in how they pass along spiritual truth.
