Raising and Educating Teens

Posted by Annie on May 28, 2007 in California |

Do you have teenagers? (Or almost teens.) Are you quaking in your boots wondering if you have any clue what you are doing, all while attempting to appear as if you do? – After all what would my mother-in-law say about this? – Then you are not alone. It’s not as if the kids came with instructions. Once a teenager enters your home, life is never the same and the road ahead can get bumpy and hazardous to your health.

Way back when the yungins were still home, I would often check out the teenagers in our church. When I found a child that emulated the traits I wanted for my own children, I would corner the parents and ask them for their secret. It seems too ridiculous, recalling it now. It was as if I were asking for a cake recipe. Like any parent could give instructions for raising a successful child (what is the meaning of success?) in ten minutes or less.

"Just boil it all down to the finer points so that I don’t screw up my children too badly".

Face it folks, some kids are easier than others and we all know it. Each little bundle of joy comes complete with their own little personality and one size does not fit all. Fortunately, you don’t have to try to pick your friends brains or guess your way through the teen years. You aren’t forced to go it alone any more. You can listen and talk with real-live, flesh and blood, teen experts. This line up is first-rate – one you can’t afford to miss.
