I see it on parents’ faces all the time. The stress and strain of dealing with a difficult child… who’s bent on self-destruction. The pressure of dealing with an out- of- control kid lands squarely on mom, dad… and their marriage.
If you’re struggling with your teen, you know the situation has the potential to pull families apart. Mom and dad, above all else, you need to protect your relationship!
Make a commitment today that you’ll do whatever you have to do to shelter… and re-ignite… the passion and respect in your marriage. Look at family struggles as something you both need to manage together. Stop the blame game. Don’t avoid the pain. And build in time to have fun!
Do what your kids… and your whole family… needs. Keep your marriage strong!
