Shepherding Your Child’s Heart

Dear Parent,Parenthoodemailshep

This month is about the importance of your role in the life of your teenager. I know there are times that the only role you feel you have is that of an ATM, chauffeur, and referee! But please know that it is a proven fact that you as a parent have more influence in your teen’s life than any other factor. It doesn’t always seem that way but it is true. Just to be honest, parenting a teenager can often be discouraging and overwhelming.

It’s during these times that you have to remember that you play a huge part in guiding and teaching your teen. And to do that well, you have to have confidence! But not any old kind of confidence. It has to be God sized. I like to call it God confidence! It’s the kind of confidence you have, when you are questioning everything and feel absolutely lost, but know that you work inside of truth!

Your teen is lucky to have you. Someday they may even tell you that!

Here is a short video to encourage you today:  http://vimeo.com/parentministry/review/76756779/c0b0d03574
