There’s no perfect formula for bringing a teenager to maturity. But… there are three ingredients that’ll give you a good head start!
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston… with Parenting Today’s Teens.
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 to fail …and then encouragement to learn from their mistakes.
And third. Truth is the correcting influence that balances their actions with what’s right and wrong. Living out the truth also means that consequences come when they step over the line!
Love, grace and truth. Take those three… flood your home and relationships with them. It’s the foundation for raising healthy, godly and mature young adults.
