Parenting Today’s Teens

Christian talk radio with Mark Gregston

February 21, 2020

Years ago, I met a high school boy who’d kept a secret about an inappropriate relationship with an older woman. The personal shame and the pressure of keeping the secret drove him to give up everything he loved… and to hurt his closest relationships. When the boy’s secret was finally exposed, his parents couldn’t believe he didn’t confide in them sooner. He said, “You never asked.” Mom …dad… there’s power in asking questions. No matter what inappropriate behaviors your teen engages in… you can connect with your kids by asking insightful questions. Then… wait for the answer! Don’t try to fill in the awkward silence with more words. You’ll be surprised how much you learn about your teen… because you ask… and because you listen.
