NLQ Question of the Week: Why Not Allow Children Small Freedoms?

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Not Allow Children Small Freedoms? January 5, 2017

QuestionoftheweekThis is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice.

In the last day we’ve seen fear mongering posts on how you have to stay on top of your children every moment of every day to make them obedient, physically discipline them in a harsh way to insure compliance. This also relates back to our first NLQ Question of the Week – Are Patriarchal Moms Actually Helicopter Parents?

Is all this control really about keeping a child from sinning, or is it to make the parent feel better?
