Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What are you teaching your children about modesty?
“I don’t think parents should impose their standards on their kids’ clothing. We should let them express themselves. I mean, I may not like everything my kids wear, but they’ve got the right to make their own decisions.”
Nancy: It’s true that parents can give their children freedom to express their own tastes. But parents are also responsible to teach their children about modesty. Daughters need to be taught how guys think when they see provocative clothing. Sons need to be taught to run from temptation.
Children also need boundaries and guidelines when they’re still at home. They need parents to help them show restraint.
“But mom—it’s just a belly button. What does it matter?”
Nancy: What are you teaching your kids about modesty? Will they leave home knowing how to be modest? And most important, will they have a heart that wants to be modest?
