“The root of problems in our families and homes and youth ministries is the sinful, selfish mature of kids and adults. It can be difficult to coexist peacefully. Parents must strive to raise healthy, well-adjusted kids. But it’s unrealistic to expect perfect kids and perfect families. To embrace such expectations only burdens parents and their kids with never “measuring up.”

We must never forget that we’re all imperfect, finite beings touched by sin and incapable of perfection- not with our parenting, our ministries, or our homes.”

– Walt Mueller, Youth Culture 101
