Abstract

"If there is one thing that is taken for granted it is that in order to raise moral children of good character, that it is absolutely necessary to be obedient to God's will and teachings through scripture. This position has basically been unchallenged for centuries as true until recent research has raised serious questions. In fact, the data show that the opposite may be true much of the time. This paper will explore the issues of religious parenting content and methods against what science currently understands about healthy and moral human development. "
