This is one of the posts where I’d like to be super honest and transparent. Here it is: You should make your kids go to church. Admittedly, this sounds a bit harsh and forceful, but stay with me.
Involvement in church is directly correlated to faith formation in young people. In other words–and maybe this is obvious–a young person’s church attendance is oftentimes connected with their ability to develop into a mature believer. And if that’s the goal of faith (which I think we can all agree with), then going to church is a really important thing.
