Parent Guilt: Dealing With The Weight Of Parenting
The Bible encourages believers to understand parenting as a picture of the gospel. Humans were created for connection. The gospel is the story of how God is reconnecting with us through love, empowering us for his work, and correcting us for a restorative purpose. Likewise, the Christian parent will seek to connect with their child to meet their needs; empower their child for mission and formation through meeting their needs; and discipline their child with a restorative goal. And even when the Christian parent feels shame for not getting it right every time, there is always grace-based hope for repairing the rupture.
