Raising Teenagers



Raising teenagers isn’t for cowards—that's why prayer is critical!

Raising teenagers isn’t for cowards. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries. Since becoming a mom, I’ve had to develop courage that I never knew was possible…especially now that four out of my five kids are teenagers.

I define motherhood during the teen years as a time when one learns the graceful art of not panicking even though everything in her being tells her this is exactly what she should do. The reality is that teens will sometimes make choices that go against everything their parents have instilled in them.

That’s why prayer is crucial. One of my specific prayers is for my kids to get caught every time they do something they shouldn’t. That way, I can help them process their choices using God’s truth. These aren’t always fun and easy conversations but I’ve found them to be extremely rich with essential life lessons.
