Warning Signs of Porn – MBFLP 160

 

We get messages all the time from parents who’ve found out one of their children is watching porn. In every one, the parents express shock. They had no idea, no clue that this was going on in their house, so they just aren’t prepared to deal with it. When we talk to them, though, the signs have been there — they just missed them. This episode, we’re talking about warning signs that someone in your family is watching pornography – not so you can ambush them, but so you can get them help.

Healthy Guy-Girl Relationships – MBFLP 159

 

We’ve heard the full range of opinions when it comes to young people and relationships – from the barber who asks the 7-year-old if he has a girlfriend yet, to the twenty-something girl who says, “Daddy is going to find me a husband.” Surely the Bible has something to say about this … and it does, but not as cut-and-dried as we might have thought! This episode we look into the question of friendship between guys and girls – is it possible? Is it advisable? Or is it commendable?

What Time Is Curfew? – MBFLP 147

mbflp-147-curfew-v

 

Several people have asked us “What time is curfew at your house? When do you require your kids to be home? Is it different for teens and twenties?” 

Our answer usually surprises them — because we really don’t have one! That doesn’t mean our kids run rampant, smashing mailboxes at 3 a.m. and hanging out in grocery store parking lots all night … but it’s because of an approach we take with relationships and responsibility in our family. This episode, we’ll talk about how and why we handle the question of curfew the way we do!

The Only Biblical Way to Parent – MBFLP 136

RRM One Biblical Way to Raise a BabyNew parents are deluged with advice about the best way to care for their infants and young children. New believers with children of any age may have the same experience – only this time, it’s often promoted as the Biblical way to raise them … how to be a truly Christian parent.The problem we’ve seen with several popular programs is their claim to be the Biblical pattern. The one and only, exclusive, accept-no-substitute guide to God’s rule book for raising kids. This episode, we talk about where this approach falls short – and how quickly we fall into harshness, judgment, and legalism toward our children and our fellow believers!
