As a parent, you have a lot of things you could worry about. Culture offers much distraction, temptation, and confusion. If there are three things to pay attention to, I’d focus on these top three:

1. Social Media. It dominates.
Kids and adults don’t talk to each other like we used to. Communication has become impersonal.
As parents, we are feeding it by buying phones and introducing our little children to screen time way too early.

2. Social Guidelines and Taboos have all disappeared.
It is now a situation of “situational ethics”. If you don’t stand for anything, you will fall for everything!

3. Children are the center of the family universe.
Mom and Dad, your kids need to see that your marriage counts. Not only that, but teach your kids to care for others by modeling it!
