Few things teach us the importance of relying on the power and strength of God than parenting teenagers. No matter how many books or podcasts we rely on, the number of ways that a teenager can find themselves in trouble is constantly evolving. There is simply no possible way to protect them from every possible danger which can make us feel hopeless or unequipped.
Perhaps you can relate to one of the following scenarios:
- You check for computer to find that your daughter has a secret social media account filled with inappropriate texts and pictures.
- You’re afraid to make even the smallest request of your son because doing so will throw him into a fit and you just don’t have it in you to handle another episode today.
- You receive the third phone call this week from your childâ€™s teacher saying your son is acting out…again!
As parents, there is a lie we tend to believe that we have to have all of the answers and have to make this journey alone. There are few things more painful than watching your child suffer alone but it can feel defeating or even humiliating to reach out for help. Here at New Vision Counseling and Consulting, we want you to know that reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness, but of wisdom. We want to walk alongside you to equip your child with the necessary tools to effectively handle the adversity and stress of this challenging stage of life.
