Christian Parenting

This is a link to a recent post by my fellow monastic character the Internet Monk. Titled How Religious Parents Royally Screw Up Their Children, it has quite a few stellar observations about the foolishness of certain parenting techniques used by Christians. Here is a quote:

Quite a few youngsters herded down the broad path called Christian approval never found the narrow road called Christ.

The iMonk's post reminded me of something I read on a glance-through of a book called Real Sex: The Naked Truth About Chastity. The author cited a statistic concerning sexual activity among teenage girls. The activity that is the most likely preventer of pre-marital sex in girls?

Church attendance?
Inovlvement in youth group?
Daily Bible studies?
Rigorous instruction on the Christian moral understanding of sex?


Sports. The more involved she is in sports, the less likely the girl is to have sex.

Still think the Kingdom of God is of this world?
