How do you move forward if you feel like you have already failed as a father? How would you respond to a child questioning their gender identity?
These are some of the hard questions asked and answered in this part one episode with Dr. Meg Meeker.
Dr. Meg Meeker is a pediatrician with more than 30 years of experience, mother of four, and grandmother of six. She has authored 7 books including “Strong Father, Strong Daughter” and has spoken globally about raising up the next generation.
In the first part of this two-part episode, Ken and Meg discuss the important role fathers play in raising up their sons and daughters in a godly way. Dr. Meeker shares how to navigate raising a child in a culture where “gender identity” is viewed as negotiable and what to do if the topic of “transitioning” arises with your child.
- “You’re accountable to God. So what you need to do from a biblical perspective is look at that child and say to them, you know, God created you perfectly because God doesn’t make mistakes.” – Dr. Meg Meeker
- “I believe that if fathers could see who they are through their kid’s eyes and in particular the eyes of their daughters, their lives would never be the same because dads are larger than life in their kids’ eyes. They are heroes! Girls want protection, even when they’re 18 and 19. Their dads are the love of their lives. ” – Dr. Meg Meeker
