I love my teens! Teens and moms have a sacred relationship – or we should! Our babies are growing up! While it is exciting to watch our children grow and mature, it is also a scary thought. If you have little kids please do not skip this episode. I believe you’ll receive good information that you can begin using today, no matter what your children’s ages.

I’ve been through this a few times, five to be exact. So, you can say I have some experience with this situation. I recall friends talking about raging hormones when my kids were little and I thought it was a horrible way to describe teens. Teens deserve our respect and yes, teens should respect adults. Bad behavior is never excused nor is it allowed to continue.

The teens years begin on paper when a child turns thirteen, however, the teen years are thirteen years in the making. The way we raise our children will impact the way our teens act when they receive this milestone.

Believe me kids don’t wake up one day and say, “Today I’ll make my mom’s life miserable. In the same way that parents don’t decide that today is a good day to begin restrictions. Raising kids is a dance that begins when they are little and we begin to put our first restrictions down. Most of the restrictions are in keeping our kids safe.

Foundations should already be set and in place so when the teen years occur the family continues on as usual but it is also a time when serious conversations should be added and that includes taking the time to be mom and dad.

Good Foundations:

  1. Open lines of communication.
  2. Clearly laid out rules. Curfew, etc.
  3. Ideas on dating (or not!)
  4. School work requirements.
  5. Chores, etc.

Respect is earned on all parts. Yes, our children should be respectful but we should

Matthew 10: 13-16

 Proverbs 17:6

Leviticus 19:3

Deuteronomy 10:20

Exodus 21:17

 I pray that the teen years are joyous for you and your children and it is a time for your teens to discover what the Lord has in store for their lives!
