The Song to Inoculate Your Kids Against Gender Ideology:
As a father, I love my son dearly. I’m delighted when he learns a new word (he’s 1 year old). It gladdens my heart when he masters a new skill. I’m excited when he figures out connections on his own. And I’m rendered speechless when he demonstrates affection for me and my wife.
I’m sure all parents can relate to these emotions. I’m sure, too, that all parents want, as I do, to protect their children from anything bad that could happen to them in life. This urge grows more urgent amid a godless culture that increasingly targets young children with flattery, lies, wicked counsel, and encouragement to rebel against authority, to their own destruction (Proverbs 24:21-22).
Yet our dream of protecting our children from all evil is beyond our power; we are not God. We can avoid danger zones. We can erect sensible guardrails. We can forestall foolish decisions. We can offer wise counsel. We especially can pray that God would protect them.
But there will come a point when our children must leap out of our slipstream into the headwinds of life. Even if we are remarkably successful at protecting our children for their first 18 or so years, we can’t protect them forever.
Thus, part of our responsibility as parents is to prepare our children to stand firm once they depart the protection of our roof. The Proverbs instruct us, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
This responsibility is particularly directed to fathers, who are commanded to “bring [their children] up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
One way to forearm our children against the world’s predatory ambushes is by instructing them in godly wisdom. The wisdom that comes from above will teach them to reject the enticement of sinners (Proverbs 1:10), escape the snares of folly (Proverbs 6:1-5), and lead them in the way of life (Proverbs 6:20-23). Wisdom will continue to guard our kids when we no longer can (Proverbs 4:5-6).
Parents may have 18 years with their children, but they need to start training them in godly wisdom early in that process. Children begin to form a worldview as early as 15 to 18 months, and their worldviews are almost fully formed by age 13, according to research conducted by George Barna. These years are called formative for a reason, and parents are on the front line of that formation. --->READ MORE HERE and WATCH VIDEO BELOW (or HERE)
