As our teens begin to assert their independence, it is important for us to continue to walk with them.
As your teen begins to detach from you, it's critical they have a good group of God-fearing and God-loving peers to belong to. Establish a good partnership between you and your church's youth ministry.
An active faith goes beyond church or Christian activities. Our teen now needs to know why they believe and not just what they believe. Affirm the reality of God and the authority of the Bible, but be transparent that you don't have the answers to everything. On the contrary, demonstrate your confidence in the Lord by showing a willingness to engage in productive dialogue. If you still feel personally inadequate, sign up for a course to learn together with your teen.
