MBFLP – Dealing with Conflict with Tweens and Teens

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

MBFLP Dealing with Conflict in Teens and Tweens

 

How much anger is “normal” for a pre-teen (or a teen)-aged boy? Is there anything to be done about it, or is the best we can do just to hang on and hope they grow out of it? Actually, with our six sons, we’ve seen our share of hormonally-driven outbursts and rage, and we’ve found out that there are Biblically-sound ways to respond to these challenging days, and even turn them into times for discipleship. Tune in for a half hour that may make a difference in your family for years to come!
