Being an Alert and Vigilant Parent

Teens live amid such tumultuous waters, it can be hard to detect if something is just an adolescent squall or if there's a real storm brewing.  As a parent, you're caught between a rock and a hard place.  You don't want to be perceived as a meddling parent.  You want your teenager to learn how [...]

When Teenagers Ask “Who Am I?”

One of the most important questions that teenagers grapple with during the time of adolescence is, “Who am I?”  Then, as they are answering the question, they also have to decide, “Do I love who I am?” Self-esteem during adolescence, as we all know, can take a pretty substantial beating.  I believe everyone, whether a [...]

Guiding Your Son’s Choices of Books, Video Games and Movies

Lessons of struggle, perseverance, character, strength, and hope are found not only in Scripture, but also in culture.  There are movies, books, and video games that capture the essence of heroism and can capture the heart of a boy.  Even flawed cultural offerings can provide an opportunity to instill character-building traits in boys.  You may, [...]

What Does the Word “Support” Look Like in Your Family?

The secret to healthy kids can be found through a whole-person approach to the needs of your child.  By addressing the emotional, relational, physical, and spiritual needs of children, parents are able to provide a balanced, caring environment that contributes to lifelong happiness and health.

How to Recognize if Your Son is Overwhelmed

I'll never forget a time one of my sons lost a football game.  He was in middle school, and I was the resident taxi, driving back and forth to practices and games.  Usually, these drive times were great bonding times for us, but after this particular loss, my son was completely shut down. Instead of [...]

Keeping Relationships on Neutral Ground

It was all the computer's fault, actually.  If the computer setup at the campaign headquarters had been better, Jim never would have suggested that he and Tracy go to his place to work on the leaflet.  But the computer at campaign headquarters was old and slow, and it had pitiful memory capacity.  His swank publishing [...]

Helping Children Make Healthy Choices with Technology

The American Association of Pediatrics put out a statement about how parents should interact with media, or what we call technology. Read the list of suggestions from the AAP, and determine when you are going to implement each one. Number each item in the order you want to incorporate them into your family routine. Consider [...]

Anxiety: Accept the Small Stuff

One of the mistaken beliefs surrounding anxiety is that everything that happens centers around you.  This mistaken belief can take on a life of its own when you are in anxiety overload.  You become a raw nerve, jumping at everything that happens around you and at everyone you come into contact with.  In such a [...]

The Quintessential Meaning of Intimacy

In one of the most moving books I’ve read, entitled Letters to an Unborn Child, David Ireland, disabled, confined to a wheelchair and terminally ill, wrote a series of letters to the unborn child he would never meet. While his wife was expecting, Ireland took the time to write letters to be read one day [...]

Mentor and Monitor Your Child’s Relationships

As your child grows, he or she will come into contact with more and more people outside your family and circle of friends. They will meet coaches, teachers, other parents, other children, and other adults. They will encounter mentors and those they simply don’t like very well. In all of these relationships, your child is [...]
