More
A man struggling with terminal cancer once told me, “I try not to stand too long on the mountain, and I don’t sit too long in the valley. I live one day at a time and try to keep my attitude somewhere near the middle.” In a situation that was totally out of his control, […] The post One Day at a Time appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

When a teenager is causing problems in the family, he isn’t the only one in need! Moms and dads desperately need support, as well.

Love, Grace and Truth

More
There’s no perfect formula for bringing a teenager to maturity. But, there are three ingredients that’ll give you a good head start! First. Unconditional Love lets them know there’s nothing they can do to make you love them more, and nothing they can do to make you love them less. Second. Grace gives them room […] The post Love, Grace and Truth appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

Value of Connecting

10/18/2017
More
Teens do a lot of empty-headed communicating, especially by cell phone, IM, Facebook and text. In fact, it’s not unusual to see a group of teens sitting in the same room, sending text-messages to one another, instead of just having normal conversations! Yeah, this new generation knows how to communicate, and they have every device […] The post Value of Connecting appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

In order for parents to have a healthy relationship with their teen, it’s necessary to create a safe harbor where healthy relationships can develop. So, does your child sense your unconditional love?

Everyone has those moments when they don’t handle things well, and even the best parent loses it once in awhile. But if losing your cool has become the new normal, maybe it’s time to hit the pause button, and get some help. Ephesians 6:4 says, Fathers, don’t provoke your children to wrath.

Asking for Forgiveness

10/13/2017
More
When was the last time you humbled yourself, and spoke those two giant words, I’m sorry? I once witnessed an entire family break down and sob when the father asked each member to forgive him for the way he’d handled himself in their relationship. He extended the olive branch with intensity and emotion. It was a […] The post Asking for Forgiveness appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

Avoid the Lecture

10/12/2017
More
There’s nothing more destructive to your relationship with your child than constant lecturing. Whenever conflict occurs, if your knee-jerk reaction is to lecture, you’re communicating that you don’t think your teen can think for himself. And if you condemn him for his mistakes, you’re actually reinforcing that you don’t really respect him. That’s not your […] The post Avoid the Lecture appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

Content with Whatever

10/11/2017
More
Let me ask you a question. Are you content with whatever your teen wants to do with his or her life? Teens often feel that they can’t live up to their parents’ expectations. In their mind, it’s just impossible, even if your hopes are totally reasonable. So let me ask the question again. Will you […] The post Content with Whatever appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

Creating Change in Myself

10/9/2017
More
Families call me all the time and say, “We need help! What do we do to fix our kid?” You know what my answer is? Well, there’s very little we can do to fix our kid. You gotta turn that notion around. What we’ve got to focus on is fixing ourselves. In the process, we’re […] The post Creating Change in Myself appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

WEEKEND: Helping Your Teen Beat Selfishness

10/7/2017

Guest: Tim Elmore It’s been said there are only three things a teen cares about: “me, myself and I!” And while teens naturally see the world from a self-centered perspective, parents can help redirect this tendency.

Pain Is Predictable

More
Pain is predictable. You don’t have to guess. Guaranteed. It’s coming. Because, anytime you confront foolish thinking, when two value systems clash, or have a contest of opinions and ideas, it’s painful.

Don’t Get Distracted

10/5/2017
More
Dealing with a teen whose behavior is inappropriate, and whose life is spinning out of control, takes a parent who’s focused. I mean, focused like a laser. Your teen will try and distract you by acting out. But don’t be fooled, there’s something else going on beneath the surface. As a mom or dad, it’s […] The post Don’t Get Distracted appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.

Financial responsibility is a necessary life skill that even most adults haven’t mastered. Which is why it’s so important to start teaching our teens at an early age.

Learning Respect

10/3/2017
More
Growing up, I always had a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for people in positions of authority. But kids today don’t see it that way! Our teens have seen it all.

Changed by Pain

C.S. Lewis once wrote, “We don’t necessarily doubt that God will do the best for us; we wonder how painful the best will turn out to be.” As parents, we never seek out pain when raising a family. In fact, we usually do everything within our power to avoid it. But all too often, our […] The post Changed by Pain appeared first on Parenting Today's Teens.
