Don't teach right from wrong ..

The government are still trying to work out why we have the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the whole of Europe.   Fact is our youth have no idea what is right and wrong … and the leaders of our country think THIS is a good idea ….

It cautions: “Discussing your values with your teenagers will help them to form their own.

“Remember though, that trying to convince them of what’s right and wrong may discourage them from being open.”

Oh yeah right, Dan is only 4.5 right but we spend most of our time trying to help him understand right from wrong, and further from that, be able to decide for himself what is right form wrong.  We have to employ all the parting know how we have,  naughty steps and (don’t tell the lawyers) smacking.  We also use the Bible a lot.  Every night we read a story with him, and discuss it with him, and try to ally it to the day we have just had.   Dan fully understands there are absolute writes and wrongs.. he just isn’t always quick enough to think it through for himself!
