Itâ€™s a common story.Â Mom and Dad enjoy great relationships with their innocent young kidsâ€¦ everything is going just fineâ€¦ then, out of nowhereâ€¦ your teen becomes a monster!
One moment your family looks like the American dream.Â The next moment, youâ€™re spinning out of controlâ€¦ and wondering where you failed.Â Your Ozzie and Harriet home has morphed into a nightmare.
So, Mom, Dad, ask yourself this question:Â Is this really a bad thing?
If members of your family are hurting themselves or othersâ€¦ be sure to get help!Â But if these turbulent times are nothing more than an innocent departure from the family you imagined â€¦you might wanna stop and ask the Lord what Heâ€™s trying to teach you.
Broken ideals could be the doorway to an exciting an unexpected future of blessing.
