There are all kinds of pitfalls that we can fall into as parents. Some hazards are easy to spot or to avoid. Others can be tricky. They may be disguised as something that is good or healthy, but in reality, they can lead to difficulty or even cause damage.

"Gospel-centered parenting focuses on cultivating the heart toward submission to the Word of God, repentance, godliness, and cherishing the gospel." - Jason K. Allen
