Of course a parent's role must change, but the parental role is still important, and I can attest to the fact that it can be as meaningful, memorable, and significant in the college days and into adulthood as it was during all the previous stages of your child's life...

10 Things Every Teenager Needs to Know About Their Parents

Face it -- you are stuck with us, at least for the next few years! And avoiding spending time with us, rejecting our hugs, and refusing to talk is not going to change that.

College-Bound: Turning Your Child Over to the Campus Culture

On most college campuses, the prevailing orthodoxy opposes both Christian values and conservative principles. Be wise and consider course offerings, dorm environment, and the intangibles of the college experience.

Why Teens Seek the Wrong Crowd

Does your teenager feel valued and significant in your home? If not, they'll look for value and acceptance somewhere else...

Gagging on Gaga

While her preoccupation with violence, sexual promiscuity and exhibitionism may be her path to fame, they are also a symptom of a hungry, sad and unsatisfied soul.

Moms' Ultimate Guide to the Tween Girl World

In Moms' Ultimate Guide to the Tween Girl World, Nancy Rue gives mothers practical advice and spiritual inspiration that will enable them to see their mini-women into adolescence strong, confident, authentic, and God-centered—even in a morally challenged society. Read an excerpt.

Shedding Some Light on Twilight

If Bella were my daughter, several alarm bells would be going off in my head about her relationship with Edward. I would not approve.

Drug Abuse Starting Earlier Than Ever

It used to be that older teens were the most susceptible to drug experimentation, but kids today are starting earlier than ever. In fact, 10- to 14-year-olds are now the most likely to begin using one intoxicating substance or another.

Prodigal Fathers

Have you ever considered the father figure in the Parable of the Prodigal to be the focus of that story, not the wayward son? After all, the word "father" is mentioned many more times than the word "son."

Cell Phones, Computer Games and Teenagers

I have a question/dilemma: How does a parent regulate a teen's phone, iTouch, laptop, and TV usage during the summer?

To Tell the Truth: Confronting a Dishonest Teen

Kids lie for the same reasons that adults lie...to lift themselves up, to get ahead, to destroy their competition, or to protect themselves and avoid consequences. It's best to deal with dishonesty earlier in life, since it tends to grow incrementally with each lie that isn't caught.

For parents, there is no worse feeling than watching your child spin out of control while nothing you do seems to make any difference. If your teenager's behavior is giving you feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and fear, I would like to offer you some suggestions.

Pornography -- The Difference Being a Parent Makes

Steve Jobs made this clear in his retort to Ryan Tate that he "might care more about porn when you have kids." Parenthood changes everything about one's outlook on life and its challenges.

Are We Adequately Preparing Our Young People for Life?

Today's generation of youth leaders are reaching young people in wonderful and innovated ways. Unprecedented resources are being thrown at Christian youth. But I hear very few messages that encourage actual maturity.
