John MacArthur on The Fulfilled Family

“Today’s parents tend to be more passive and less involved in their children’s lives than any generation in our nation’s history. They have turned their children over to artificial, surrogate parents. Day-care centers, relatives, the television set, and the child’s own peers often have far more influence on the moral and social development of today’s children than parents do. That is an abdication of the parent’s duty before God. The Lord Himself gave parents – not schools, youth leaders, Sunday school teachers, or anybody else – the primary responsibility for the nurture and admonition of [their] children.”
John MacArthur
The Fulfilled Family, p. 101.
