Thoughts for Today
Try to have at least one room in your home where your teen can invite friends - a place they can lounge and be comfortable. Invite other teens into your home regularly. Serve refreshments like popcorn or pizza. Offer to have youth Bible studies in your home.
Father, thank you for my child. These teen years are challenging for both of us. I thank you for your promise that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. I pray for wisdom in dealing with these challenges in positive ways and that these adolescent years will help my child mature into a loving young adult, rich in the character of Christ. In his 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.
