Many parents believe the myth that parenting teens is REALLY hard, and it is difficult or even impossible, to stay connected to your teen. However, as a mom of 8 kids I can assure you that it IS possible to have that connection and heart tie to your teens.
Don’t believe the lie that you should just expect your teens to pull away from you and rebel.
It IS normal for them to want a little more independence as they grow into adulthood, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a good relationship with them. Your main focus in the teen years (and any age!) should be keeping their hearts. Having their heart means you have the opportunity to pour into them, and influence them.
