What’s the matter with kids today and why doesn’t anyone want them around? In June, Malaysia Airlines banned babies from many of their first class cabins, prompting other major airlines to consider similar policies.”
Babies. As Christians, we believe God when He tells us that babies are a blessing.
Society is honestly living out their belief that children are a burden. Sadly, until Christians start “living out” the truth that children are a blessing, society won’t “get it.” This is our fault. We have a responsibility to glorify God when we’re out – it communicates something. Prepare them ahead of time by training them at home and making sure they are dressed decently with their hair brushed etc. when they go out in public.
Of course, there will be the horrifying exception (I had one child with special needs who really struggled with self control), but we can prepare ahead to make it easier for them to behave and bless others. One simple way is to make sure you don’t go out at nap time. Another is to make sure they eat lunch BEFORE going to the grocery store. Avoid sugar, MSG, and red dye. Train them at HOME before you take them out and do all you can to make it easier for them.
