Thoughts for Today
Help your teenager find after-school work if he is interested. A part-time job is an excellent teacher of responsibility and can provide extra money for your child. This can be especially important if he is saving for further schooling.
Father, help me guide my teenager along the right paths. Teach me to really listen to him and not be judgmental. Help me keep the doors of communication open. And help me be a living example of the things he needs to learn. Also help me to be humble enough to teach him by sharing mistakes I've made and the consequences I suffered. In Jesus' name . . .

Godly Parenting: Parenting Skills at Each Stage of Growth by N. Elizabeth Holland, M.D. This study addresses parenting skills from the time of conception until the child has reached adulthood. It suggests methods for raising healthy, godly children in an increasingly secular society. Specific emphasis is placed on communication and teaching skills, discipline, protection and sexual issues at each age. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
