There’s a scripture in Ephesians, chapter 6, that reads, “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” I take this counsel to heart, but in today’s world, it can be tricky. I love being a father, and every day, I’m grateful to have my two children in my life. But parenthood has always been a difficult undertaking, and the conveniences and trends of the modern world make it especially hard. I have to give them credit. Young people face some real challenges today — not because life is so difficult, but because our modern world can make things so easy. Many young kids are addicted to video games, texting, and Netflix. There are more outlets to escape reality than there have ever been. That’s why I encourage my kids to read books and avoid too much screen time. We also have a family devotional every week, something to break up the week and connect with family and with God. I find that when you make time for those two things, which are the most important things to us, everything else falls into place. Some of the challenges of parenthood — technology especially — are more prevalent today than they were 20 years

Soon, Kathy will be at the same place as David. She’s 10 years old, and things are still pretty simple. When they’re younger, I can just say no, but as they get older, “no” is not enough. I have to explain why and treat them like a mini adult. I can’t take to anger so easily. But, now that they’re old enough to understand, it’s also an opportunity to explain what the Bible teaches us about behavior. ago. Other challenges are timeless. For instance, David, my oldest, just became a teenager, and the rebellion is coming out right on schedule. All the physical and emotional changes happening at that age don’t exactly help. A few weeks ago, during a scrimmage for David’s flag football team, which I have the pleasure of coaching, he was being vocally disrespectful. He thought the activity was a waste of our time. I’ll be honest, I wanted to get upset because he was bringing the team down with his negativity. But I remembered the scripture: “do not exasperate your children.” I knew it was a good time to try connecting to his heart. I pulled him aside and asked him, “Why do you think I’m coaching?” He didn’t know. “I do this so I can spend more time with you and teach you sportsmanship,” I said. “You can have fun, but there are important things to learn here. One of those things is to respect your elders — whether it’s your dad or your coach. In this case it’s both. I need you to get on board.”
