A couple once wrote to me from Alaska saying they had been disappointed by the cancellation of an event they thought would fulfill their dreams. They said they were going through the big "Ds," feeling Discouraged, Depressed, Detcated, Dejected, Disturbed, Down-cast, Down-trodden, Drained and dumbfounded, adding that they were in the dumps. And you thought you had problems. Feel better'? Maybe not. You may not be helped at all by thinking about how much worse things could be or by realizing others are going through difficulties even more severe than the ones your facing today. You've had it.

It really is not an easy question to'answer in today's world. We are all aware of the violence in schools and work places. And then there are our deepest personal concerns that never make headlines. For some people there might be a concern and a worry about job security, bills to be paid, illness or a son or daughter. It might be a concern about a parent or spouse. So how can we answer Jesus' question, "Who do you say I am'?" What helps me when I see painful uncertainties is the simple act of remembering. St. Paul tells us that Focus on the Family... by Dr. James Dobson QUESTION: I worry so much about my children and wonder if I'm raising them wisely. Every few days my husband and I encounter a problem we don't know how to handle. Is it common for other parents to feel this way? It never has been easy to raise healthy and productive children. After all, babies come into the world with no instructions and you pretty much have to assemble them on your own. They are also maddeningly complex, and there are no guaranteed formulas that work in every instance. And finally, the techniques that succeed magnificently with one child can fail bewilderingly with another. DR. DOBSON: This difficulty in raising children is a recurring theme in the letters we receive at Focus on the Family. We have heard it so often, in fact, that we decided to conduct a poll to ascertain the common frustrations of parenting. The answers received from more than 1,000 mothers and fathers were very revealing. Some responded with humor, especially those who were raising toddlers. They told the most delightful stories about sticky telephones, wet toilet seats and knotted shoestrings. Their experiences reminded me of the days when Shirley and I were chasing ambitious preschoolers. Don't. Instead of giving up, look up! Tbat's what the Psalmist did on one of his dark days. Refusing to surrender to despair, he said he had decided to turn his eyes heavenward: "I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comes my help. My help comes from the LORD who made heaven and earth (Psalm 121:1-2). My work has placed me with people in the most trying times of their lives. I have been there when tears were flowing, when all the castles had tumbled, when the feared and unwanted had happened. But I have watched these same people gain strength from some biblical promise that enabled them to rise up after their storms and get on with faith-filled living, often seeing their former trials as learning experiences that contributed to later successes. In his bo~N, "And There Are Those Who Weep," Louis Paul Lehman urges his readers to nourish their faltering faith by reading the Bible. "Examine the records," he writes. "They will strengthen your faith. The decree of Pharaoh cannot touch Moses; Goliath's laighter cannot frighten "Christ is bebre all things and in Him all thingshold together" (Col. I, 16-17). These words teils us that, in the end, it is the Crtator, God, who is in control. The Aulkor of Life, God, has the final authorityover things. This does not mean that "bad" things will not h:ppen. No, God has given His people freedom, and with that freedom con, choices. We are painfully aware o! some bad choices people make. We ourselves perhaps have made bad choces at times. We too often, h~wever, lose sight of God's overwheming presence in our lives and in our~,orld. Why? Because fear blus our perception and fear shrinks om vision. One bad thing happens to us we see one bad thing happen in ourcountry, and the God of the Univers~ shrinks in our mind. What little l ith we have at times ! Remember that om God can bring us peace of mind r~ matter what al -"Not knowing how cope with children's problems." - "Not being able to mke the kids feel secure and loved." -"I've lost confidence in ny ability to parent." -"I've failed my children." -"I'm not the example I shuld be." - "Seeing my own bad hbits and character traits in my children.' - "Inability to relate t~ my children." -- "Dealing with guilt when itseems that I have failed my sons." 7 "Inability to cope." - "It's too late to go back md :1o it right." --'I'm overwhelmed by the responsibility of it all." Isn't it incredible to oberve how tentative we have become tbout this task of raising children? Prenting is hardly a new technology, yet we've become increasingly nerv,us about bringing up the baby. It isa sign of the times. QUESTION: Why do ou think parents are so quick to criticize themselves? What is the sou:e of the self-doubt that seems so prev~ent? DR. DOBSON:. It is a cultural phenomenon. Mothers, e~ecially, have been blamed tbr everyttng that can conceivably go wren, with children.
