Parents often approach me and ask how they should be training their kids to survive in todayâ€™s culture.Â Itâ€™s a great question!
Here are some of the core areas for parents to focus on:
Train your teen to handle rejection and disappointment by allowing them to experience both.
Train your teen to appreciate hard work.
Train them to make wise decisions by working through the consequences of poor ones.
Train them to bounce back from mistakes.
Train them to handle money by giving them a checkbook early on.
And finallyâ€¦ train them to choose the path of integrity, honesty and keeping their word.
Those arenâ€™t my insights â€¦ they come straight from the Bible.Â Time- tested wisdom that wonâ€™t let you down!Â Mom, Dad â€¦ letâ€™s help our kids know how to survive in todayâ€™s culture.
