The Power of a Parent’s Love
Teenager’s faith lives are strongly affected by their relationship with their parents. Dr. Robert Laurent, author of Keeping Your Teen In Touch With God lists seven factors parents can work on to strengthen family bonds:
1. Renew your own passion for Christ.
2. Verbally express your love for your teen.
3. Learn to keep their confidences and take them seriously.
4. Be vulnerable and admit when you are wrong.
5. Never embarrass your teenager.
6. Forgive and forget.
7. Give your teenager your time and attention.
