Raising Teenagers

Raising Teenagers

Help! This is likely where you are at if you have one or more teenagers running your house…I mean running around your house. You have listened to every parenting podcast and read every book and yet the struggle goes on. All your friends tell you this season will pass. All you hear is blah, blah, blah because you need real help and you don’t know what to try next.

Perhaps your are stuck reminiscing in the past. You remember parenting a toddler and thought that was difficult. They stumbled around the kitchen, knocking over the dog’s water bowl and dragging out the canned foods for the 17th time that week. They embarrassed you in the grocery store and drew a masterpiece on the living room wall in the most artistic shades of permanent marker. After chasing them up and down the hallway for what seemed like decades, they finally made it to adolescence! And now you are shell shocked because you thought that in the teenage years you could sit back and enjoy all your hard work as they coast into adulthood. Unfortunately, that’s not what is happening.

You want God’s best for your teenager and are at a loss of how to help them in this social media crazed world where everything including gravity is being questioned. Can you relate to any of the following?

  • The school has called again to let you know that your child is acting out in class and has just been suspended.
  • A friend calls and says their daughter confessed that your son was sending inappropriate pictures to her.
  • You see your daughter scrolling through her facebook and instagram feeds comparing herself and her life to perfect images on the screen.
  • You see your daughter struggling with low self-esteem and depression and feel powerless to help her.
  • You walk on eggshells because holding them accountable and even small requests send them into a rage of out of control emotions.

At this point you can feel desperate and all alone. There are few things in life more excruciating than watching your child struggle and feeling powerless to help them. Through this season of your parenting journey, you will discover amazing comfort and encouragement at New Vision Counseling. When you invite us into your story you will no longer be alone.
