Scripture describes God as our Heavenly Father. And I find great comfort in that for many reasons …
Teens are wired to be selfish, untrustworthy and are prone to make mistakes. But the most God-like response to that side of your child’s character is to continue to love them unconditionally… just as God loves us unconditionally.
Let me be clear … loving a teen doesn’t mean letting them run wild! Appropriate consequences are needed. But no mistake or blunder or selfish act should lessen your love for a son or daughter.
Hey, it comforts me to know the Heavenly Father models parenting in perfection. His grace, His mercy, His love … is a model for moms and dads … and supplies us with strength to meet the challenge.©2012 Mark Gregston www.parentingtodaysteens.org. Email: email@example.com. Phone: 1-866-700-3264
