Parenting Pre-Teens and Teens

Hello Moms!

I don’t know about you, but for me, navigating the pre-teen and teen years as a ministry mom was a scary thing. I wanted to parent my kids in a way that would bring them up to love the church a much as I do, and instill in them a deep desire to walk with Jesus. But I found when I would parent them from a spirit of fear and pressure, I ceased to be effective and I put undue legalistic burdens on them.

So what my husband came up with was a plan that, in spite of our failings, seems to have worked out. I hope you will join me in this brief video as we discuss parenting our teens in ministry, with a heart of “YES.”

Do you have advice to add for parenting teens or pre-teens? 

What take-aways from the video do you want to implement?
