I had lunch today with a friend who is 20 years and 3 kids ahead of me in life. I like to go to lunch with guys who have gone down the roads of life and fathering so I can pick their brains about stuff. We talked about being a parent and he summed up the goal of parenting in these three statements:
1. Teach your kids to become independent from you.
2. Teach your kids to be dependent on God.
3. Teach your kids they are responsible for their actions.
What do you think???
