This week is our “Successful Parents” week! I wanted to be able to pass on some of the wisdom my team and I have gleaned over the years traveling and ministering around the world from truly amazing parents of teens. Be sure and check back throughout the week for all 10 Successful Habits!
The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Parents of Teens:
- They teach them how to hear from God. Our team is unanimous in that this seems to produce some of the best young adults. We’ve watched parents come alongside their teens, teach them to diligently seek God and most importantly, obey when He speaks to them. (If you’d like to know more about hearing from God, CLICK HERE for an excellent resource)
- They model conflict resolution in their relationships. These are the husbands and wives that don’t gossip about each other (or others for that matter) to their teens. When an issue comes up, they don’t sweep it under the rug and call it a day. They work out whatever the issue was, forgive, and move on. We’ve seen some of the best marriages come out of homes with parents who were committed to resolving conflict.
