parenting: it’s not about results, it’s about love

There’s a myth perpetrated by the parenting books that I kind of hate. And it’s this. We do x to get y. We love to teach our kids to love. We pass on our values so that they will follow in them. Everything has a reason, a desired result that will make it all worth it, will lend credence and importance and value to what I do as a mom. The Christian parenting books add their own little sacred spin to this. []
