Pressure Cooker Prep
To paraphrase comic Steven Wright: “Only hermits have no peer pressure.” Our kids are growing up in one of the most pressurized cultures ever. Dr. James Dobson notes in his book, Moms and Children, Time Out for Devotions, that “Today’s generation of kids will go through some incredible pressures, maybe more than any generation in previous days.” The book of Proverbs offers good advice for all of us. “My child, if sinners try to entice you, do not consent! (Proverbs 1:10) Help your kids decide now how they will respond to temptation then. To wait is to lose the battle.
