If you could peer into the heart of your teenâ€¦ what would you see?
Proverbs 22:15 says, â€œA youngsterâ€™s heart is filled with foolishness, but discipline will drive it away.â€
So there you have it.Â Your teenâ€™s heart and mind is filled with foolishness.Â The Bible says it!
And you and I both know folks who continue to live out of that foolishness long beyond childhood.Â Your job, Mom and Dadâ€¦ as we read right here in Proverbsâ€¦ is to use discipline, love and endurance to banish that foolishness.
So stick to your job.Â Take it as a mandate from Scripture to know whatâ€™s in your childâ€™s heart and stay consistent with discipline.Â â€œA youngsterâ€™s heart is filled with foolishness, but discipline will drive it away.â€
