Caring for Your Teens

Caring for Your Teens

As our children mature and grow older, taking on more responsibilities for themselves (as well as having more opinions and a will to push back), we can sometimes lose a little of that awe and marvel we had with them when they were first born. Yet, our call as their parents will always be to love, cherish, and care for them. But we’ve learned that caring for a teenager looks a lot different than caring for a newborn or even a child.

It’s no secret that teenagers today are struggling to figure out their identity. They want to know who they are and how they fit into the world. They want to believe that their life matters and they have a place. They need to be seen and loved. As their parents, we have a tremendous influence on how they navigate these thoughts and struggles.
