Parenting Teens - Christian Family Resources

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.

Pull Out All the Stops to Help Your Teen

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.

Moms: Should You Find a Mentor for Your Daughter?

It takes a choir surrounding a soloist to really highlight her voice; in the same way, loving adults surrounding your daughter will make her life sing...

The Death of Conscience

When a young child's sensibilities are constantly violated, and he begins to ignore the natural pangs of guilt after yielding to cultural pressures, he can end up being miserable, and begins to develop a hard heart and weak spirit.

Parenting Super Hero or Not?

Counter to what some people might think, I find that the most irresponsible teens come from the most responsible parents...

Breaking the Cycle of Teen Drug Abuse

There's nothing more gut-wrenching for a parent than to deal with their teenager's drug addiction. It's like a slow death, not just for the teen, but for the the entire family.

Handling Teen Misbehavior

When a teen breaks the rules, they need a responsible adult to respond, not react.
