Chap Bettis wants to help moms and dads fulfill The Great Commission by equipping them to share the Gospel with their children and raise their kids up to become lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Chap offers practical guidance for accomplishing these important goals while also cautioning parents to avoid having a "child-centric" family by making an "idol" out of raising perfect children. He addresses three common parenting myths: (1) the perfect family environment will guarantee Christian children, (2) your child's faith is more important than your own, and (3) your child's salvation is entirely your responsibility. Chap also warns against "pharisee parenting" in which moms and dads preach to their kids but don't ensure their own relationship with God is rock solid.
