Why the Admissions Scandal Is Every Parents Problem

The recent charges against wealthy and celebrity parents buying their kids admission to prestigious universities is a big deal. There are elements of it that should cause us to consider the ways in which systems in our society are broken and create uneven opportunities for success. But it should also cause self-reflection on our part to consider the ways our goals and practices as parents might lead us down the same road. Kara Powell does a good job in this article of helping us to remember that our primary goal in parenting is to see our kids know Jesus and that should affect the decisions we make and the way that we parent.

Better Than Fortnite: Global Mission in the Digital Age

Our challenge in parenting is not just to tell our kids what we believe is best but how to communicate clearly and compellingly. We want them to understand what we are saying, but the older they get the more we want to listen and engage them with thoughtful questions. We also want to consider the way our own habits and practices are communicating something similar to or different than our words. And more and more, I am convinced that part of helping our kids learn to pursue God comes from giving them an honest, compelling picture of who God is and what he is calling them to. I don’t think our kids settle for being consumed by Fortnite, sports, or themselves because those things are all that satisfying but because they haven’t come to understand the largeness of the mission God calls us to and the courage required to carry it out. This article gives some great insight into how to talk to our kids about this and what to say.
