It occurred to me a few years ago that I was not raising kids. We used to live next door to some friends and went through several pregnancies as neighbors. Many things about our lives were the same in those early years. We both dealt with diapers, spitting up, childhood illnesses, milestones, toys all over the house, etc. But later it hit me--we were not engaged in exactly the same task. See, my friend has 2 boys and I have 2 girls. So we are not just raising kids. She is raising godly men and I am raising godly women. Our results will differ greatly, so shouldn't our parenting differ as well?
For my girls to turn into godly young ladies, I have to know how I want them to turn out. That has sent me on a journey to discover what the Bible says about women. THAT has turned up some interesting topics!!!
The thing I'm thinking about these last few days is modesty and being feminine. There is a lot to read on the web about these topics. I'm mulling over all this info and praying about it as well. I intend to talk to husband later when we get a chance. More importantly, what does the Bible have to say?
How should parenting differ for boys and girls? Any comments?
