Today in America we suffer the consquences of parental neglect. Fathers have abdicated their responsibility to bring up children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Professing Christian fathers either don't think about it at all or they think it is the mother's job, while their only job is to earn money and attend ballgames. Mothers have abandoned their children to daycare and babysitters so that they can pursue money, prestige and career. Both fathers and mothers need to take seriously God's commandments to parents.
