by June Fuentes from A Wise Woman Builds Her Home – The Christian Home: The Nursery
Editor’s note: Another wanna be female cultural enforcer proclaiming that all mothers and fathers must do it all with no help and no distractions, like technology. If you think technology is what is driving much of the slip shod parenting going on out there it’s likely you’re not living in reality. It’s hardly the worst thing going on in modern parenting. How many female cultural enforcers have we seen blaming technology for crummy parenting while USING technology to put that message across? Hypocrite much?
What a blushing shame and disgrace to the very name of Christian mother, it is for her to throw the whole care and responsibility of the nursery upon hired and irreligious servants. And why is this so often done? To relieve the mother from the trouble of her children, and afford her time and opportunity to mingle unfettered in the giddy world of fashionable dissipation. In circles of opulent society it would now be considered a drudgery and a disgrace for mothers to attend upon the duties of this responsible department of home.
But the nurse cannot be a substitute for mother.”
–Rev. Samuel Phillips, The Christian Home
He goes on to say that both parents are both responsible for a child’s upbringing and how we must not neglect these duties, especially in the Christian home. I pause and ponder the many ways children are neglected today and it just breaks my heart. While it might not be with nurses, there are other ways parents shirk their responsibilities.
With the surge of technology, I think it is even easier for parents to be distanced. We must be vigilant to protect the four walls of precious home and not grow comfortable living like everyone else. Heaven is our home. Not this world. We are strangers here and we must keep our children’s eyes on the eternal!
