When parent’s make immoral choices their children will suffer and they will struggle to work through it. It is very difficult for a teen, who is already going through a difficult phase of life, to also have to bear the burden and embarrassment of their parent’s choices. A teen is at best a young, and immature adult, and to place this sort of burden on them is both selfish and irresponsible.
No matter the spiritual, physical, sexual, emotional, or financial needs of the parent, their children did not ask to be brought into this world. The parent made this decision. Therefore it is imperative that the parent do his/her job. You child should not have to explain why you did what you did. We will either be a good example or a bad example to our children. Your call.
