More than Self-Esteem

I read an article this week on the formation of morality and responsibility into the lives of younger children. In the article, Hannah Baehr commends the notion of training your child in the understanding that the wrong that he/she has done has long lasting effects and is a reflection of a deeper issue. Choosing to ignore this part of the inherent sin in each of us can lead to unforeseen issues in the future spiritual life of the child.


While you certainly don't want to heap upon your child undue stress of self loathing practices, she posits, "It’s not cruel to tell children they’re sinners. Sin is real, destroying lives and devouring souls. This isn’t different in the life of a child. What’s cruel is letting them live in their sin unaware. The weight of my son’s sin drove him to look for an answer—a weight he couldn’t have felt without knowing the inherent badness of his sin, of his choices, and ultimately of his own heart." If your interested in reading further, I have attached the article below. God Bless!!!!!
