Make Your Husband More Important Than Your Children

Make Your Husband More Important Than Your Children

Written By John Rosemond in 2017 I recently asked a married couple who have three kids, none of whom are yet teens, “Who are the most important people in your family?” Like all good moms and dads of this brave new millennium, they answered, “Our kids!” “Why?” I then asked. “What is it about your kids that give them that status?” And like all good moms and dads of this brave new millennium, they couldn’t answer the question other than…

The Firestorm Over Sleep Training One’s Baby

The Firestorm Over Sleep Training One’s Baby

Years ago when my children were teenagers, I read through these journals of a mother who had nine children. I loved learning from her! She was a godly woman who loved her husband and children. However, I came to the part where she wrote about sleeping with her children (like four would be in their bed at one time) and never sleep training them. She felt that those who didn’t have a family bed but did sleep train their children…

Teaching Daughters to Be Feminists or Godly Women

Teaching Daughters to Be Feminists or Godly Women

An Instagram page called “Raising Teens Today” shared a quote by Komal Shahid: “Make your daughter so capable that you don’t have to worry about who will marry her. Instead of saving money for her wedding day, spend it well on her education. Instead of preparing her for marriage, prepare her for herself. Teach her self-love and confidence.” It had almost 13,000 likes. “Make your daughter so capable that you don’t have to worry about who will marry her.” God…

Be a Warrior and Fight For Your Children

Be a Warrior and Fight For Your Children

This article was written by Debi Pearl in her magazine No Greater Joy. Many years ago Alexander Scourby made an audio recording of the entire King James Bible and it remains the standard to this day. He has great diction and a storytelling tone that make his recording so captivating. It is like listening to a really good novel. In 2020 I decided to read the Bible through while listening to Scourby. I used his recording on YouTube because it…

Seek Out Old Mothers For Child Raising Advice

Seek Out Old Mothers For Child Raising Advice

“After having a horrible experience with a female pediatrician that was trying to force me to give all kinds of vaccinations to my newborn daughter, I reached out to one of my aunts, and she told me something I will never forget. ‘Those doctors (especially the women) have dedicated their lives to their careers. If they have children of their own, they didn’t even raise them. They had nannies, daycares, or schools raising their babies. They did not and do…

Having a Great Relationship With Your Teenagers

Having a Great Relationship With Your Teenagers

“I recall that you mentioned having a great relationship with your children as teenagers. Our oldest will be 13 this year, and I want nothing more than harmonious, lifelong relationships with our children. I refuse to accept the ‘teenagers must hate their parents narrative.’ I also don’t want my children to do a complete 180 as soon as they move out. Can you please do a post about that? I’d really appreciate it and unfortunately, this just isn’t talked about….

Television Casts Its Magic Spell

Television Casts Its Magic Spell

“Like the sorcerer of old, the television set casts its magic spell, freezing speech and action, turning the living into silent statues so long as the enchantment lasts. The primary danger of the television screen lies not so much in the behavior it produces – although there is danger there – as in the behavior it prevents: the talks, the games, the family festivities and discussions through which much of the child’s learning takes place and through which his character…

True Feminine Bliss

True Feminine Bliss

This has been the feminist mantra since feminism reared its ugly head many, many years ago. I sure wish I knew what TV shows and magazines were framing being a wife and mother as “some sort of feminine ideal bliss.” I sure can’t find any these days, can you? TV shows and magazines strictly portray the bliss of being in the workforce, working for a paycheck, and being independent. There’s only a few like me who encourage women to marry,…

Coddled Children Grow Up to Be Fearful

Coddled Children Grow Up to Be Fearful

Dennis Prager made an interesting observation last Friday on his radio program. He said that coddled children grow up to be fearful. What does coddle mean? It means “to treat in an indulgent or overprotective way.” One woman in the chat room responded, “That makes sense. My siblings and I were extremely coddled growing up, and we’re all pretty fearful. Now, that’s a huge burden I carry with me and have to fight hard to work through. I don’t think…

Ken’s Advice on Fatherhood

Ken’s Advice on Fatherhood

Written by Ken Here’s an email I received from a man recently: “I just want to thank you and your wife for being models of what marriage and relationships are supposed to be. I emailed your wife and for obvious reasons she said you’re more qualified to answer a man’s questions. My wife is six months pregnant, and we’re both very excited. I just wonder if you have any advice on fatherhood? As the head of house I know my…
