The desire to bring “grace” into parenting raises many questions. “Grace” has become something of a mantra to disparage duty and to equate obedience with legalism. If a moral judgment is made, the rejoinder will often be, “Well, you need to be gracious.” Yet, if grace is pitted against God’s law, it is a false grace. If grace is used to excuse sin, again, grace is being dangerously misused. Grace is not a license to find ways to get around God’s commands.
