What are your thoughts on stay at home dads if the woman really wants to work? Or even if both want/need to work?
This question was posed to Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife Grace at the end of Pastor Mark’s sermon.
Check out the video:
Pastor Mark is way out of line. In my experience, it is much more difficult to stay at home with a child than it is to work.
In my prior career as a police officer, I observed many, many, mothers who were not fit to be one.
Therefore, is it better to have an unfit mother raising a child or, as Pastor Mark says, an “unbeliever” raising the child.
The child needs to have a loving and caring home.
Pastor Mark needs to get a clue!
What Is The First Thing You Do With Your Child?
What is the first thing you should do with your child (or someoneâ€™s youâ€™re watching) when going to a zoo, carnival, mall, concert, or other public place?
Iâ€™m sure you have some great answersâ€¦ and there is probably more than one. However, one thing Iâ€™m doing with my little terror (I say that in the most loving way), is use my cell phone to take a picture of her.
It does a couple things:
1. I now have the most up to date picture of her.
2. I now know exactly what she is wearing.
3. In case of emergency, I can now quickly send that picture out to anyone including:
-Those helping me with the emergency,
-Law enforcement, security, etc.,
It takes nothing more than a couple secondsâ€¦ my cell phone is always on meâ€¦ and worse – worse case scenario I have several pics already in my camera of previous times Iâ€™ve taken her pic, so I can use those as backups. (However, it canâ€™t be stressed enough how important it is to know what they are wearing, and being able to convey that to othersâ€¦ and a picture does that perfectly.)
Build the habit, remind loved ones, and before you know it will be second nature. If you donâ€™t have a cell phone with a camera (even the most inexpensive models do these days) â€” get one. There is really no big price differenceâ€¦ and theyâ€™ll provide you with an extra layer of protection which is priceless.
