Fear Factor in Parenting: Facing the FOMO

FOMO may be a cute new acronym for the fear of missing out, but this fear found its way into the Genesis narrative of the fall of man. By popular request, Cameron and Anna address FOMO and the modern teenager. Certainly social media has inflamed this particular fear, but it’s always been hard to watch our children get left out. Why do we, as parents, go to such great lengths, and even go against what we know is right before God, in order to see our children included? How can we stand strong when they are hurt, and how do we help them feel the love of God when they are home alone on the weekend?
