Good Parents, Prodigal Kids

From Focus on the Family
Arianna was heartsick over the immoral choices her adult son was making. She asked him where he saw Jesus in all of them.

“I’m having to rethink that,” her son said. “I’ve had questions about Jesus for a long time.” Those were the most painful words Arianna had ever heard. Her son’s behavior was one thing, but losing faith in Jesus was something else entirely.

As we talked, Arianna wondered where she had gone wrong as a mother. Should she have home-schooled her son? Had she let him get too busy with sports? Had she not emphasized faith enough?

Is this my fault? she wondered. Was I a bad parent?
