As a mom of eight kids, I would have to say that one of the hardest parenting things has been making the transition between how I treat my kids when they are young, and when they are in the teen and young adult years. It is SO easy to try to continue to control your teens and treat them the way you did when they were young, and in training. Without meaning to, many parents make mistakes in how they parent their older kids. (Yes, I have been guilty of many of them!)
Join me over at Equipping Godly Women today, where I am sharing THREE things we need to remember for effectively parenting teens.
