Our Most Critical Task

For all the tasks that life puts on our plate, there’s one area where none of us can afford to fail.

Between the busyness of work and many of life activities, it’s amazing anything gets done well.

But there’s one area of life that stands heads above the rest in importance: Raising kids to be healthy, happy, and well adjusted. It’s the most critical thing we will ever do.

Parenting is serious business. The stakes are unbelievably high, and the cost of failure is immense. We’re raising the leaders of the next generation, and what we do with that responsibility will echo into history.

The world is filled with good counselors who are ready with great advice and resources. So when you feel confused and challenged by the job of parenting, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
