The Family Discipleship Podcast
On the ninth episode of the Family Discipleship Podcast the hosts (Adam Griffin, Cassie Bryant, and Chelsea Griffin) address a very common issue that Christian parents face, parent guilt..
Questions that we answered in this episode:
- Why is having a Romans 3:23 vision of parenting important for parents?
- What is the difference between being hard on yourself for not being a better parent and sinning in omission or commission that requires repentance?
- We feel guilty when we think we did something wrong, is there such a thing as right and wrong in Christian parenting?
- What role does comparison play in parent guilt?
- Do you see a difference between grief over sin and guilt over unmet expectations?
- How can moms and dads preach the gospel to themselves when it comes to their parenting shortcomings?
- What role does community play in addressing parent guilt?
- Where do you see moms and dads potentially feeling guilty specifically around family discipleship?
- What is a godly response to making parenting mistakes?
- What is the relationship between parenting guilt and Christ’s warning to not be anxious about anything?
- What does modeling a guilty reaction to our own mistakes model for our kids that we don’t want them to learn from us?
- If we could not get over our parent guilt, how would you counsel us?
