Some of us with older children struggle with this fear. Maybe your son or daughter has made choices that could ruin them for the rest of their lives. You may be a single mom or dad living in an urban area where you fear for your kids every day. How do you help shape their lives with a heart for Christ when that’s not what the culture is teaching? First, find a ministry with strong Christian men and women who can mentor your kids. Youth for Christ: City Life is just one of those groups, and they offer some great resources. Make sure you’re firm, consistent, and loving in your discipline. And, pray, pray, pray. God will give you the wisdom you need.
