Various groups in our Malaysian society are going all out to help our teenagers avoid unhealthy habits, while filling the emotional vacuum in their hearts with positive activities like those organised by the Rakan Muda movement. Modern-day Christians, well known for being seminar organiseres, are also trying their best by convening a Parent-Teenager seminar in the Klang Valley. These are commendable efforts except for one word of caution:
If fathers do not behave as fathers towards their children, and mothers don’t behave as mothers either, no amount of seminars will be able to fill our children’s tanks that have been left empty while parents are busy fulfilling their own lives. Sometimes it is hard to know whether to pray for changes to come to the adults or the children first. Lord, how do we pray?
