I can't imagine undertaking a task as huge as parenting without some divine intervention. It's a tough job!
Most things in life are simpler when you're a Christian. Not necessarily easier, but usually less complex. Take parenting, for example. If you're a Christian, parenting by God's word, you have a plan of action all laid out for you. You don't have to re-invent the wheel. What should I teach my kid about religion? What do I tell him about pre-marital sex? How do I reassure him about death? It's all in the Book. If you're not using the Bible as your parenting manual, it can be a much more confusing, fly by the seat of your pants operation.
