Christian Parents No Different Than Others Study Shows

It seems that the majority of parents in America, regardless of religious identification, do not place a high priority on the moral or religious upbringing of their children. Is it any wonder our kids are suffering from a variety of maladies including increased violence, increased reliance on prescription medications and increased sexual activity?

Also, it is interesting to note parents desire to "do the best that they can" versus setting definable goals of how one would like one's children to turn out. Can that really be comforting to say "I did the best that I could" if you really did not?

I am taking this study to heart as I re-evaluate my priorities for my children. I will ask God to show me where my priorities may need re-ordering.
