We’ve all grown wiser from our mistakes and failures over the years. But unfortunately, there’s no short cut for our kids.
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
Yep, in most cases … our teens cannot truly grow up until they feel the painful consequences of their own failures.
We shouldn’t be so shocked when our kids made a dumb mistake. All of us are born with an infinite capacity to mess up. Gratefully, God has an infinite capacity to forgive!
So the next time your teen blows it big time … and trust me, there will be a next time … continue to reach out in love. That doesn’t mean you sweep stuff under the carpet and ignore it.
But while you’re cleanin’ up whatever mess they’ve caused, be sure your teen knows you’re ready to forgive.
