When you have an older teen spinning out of control and not responding to your discipline… it may mean you have a very important choice before you. You can let that teen stay at home and wreak havoc in the household. Or… you can ask him to leave.
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston… with Parenting Today’s Teens.
It’s a difficult decision. But parents shouldn’t allow one out- of- control teen to destroy the good things going for the rest of the family. Sometimes the best option for an older teen is to release them. Let them go.
And as parents, we should pray for their growth and development in the world… in ways they weren’t grasping at home.
Scary. Yes. But sometimes a child won’t listen to our advice …until he gets to the end of himself.
