Welcome to the Rooted Parent Top Ten, a curated list of resources from across the web that we believe will be helpful to parents raising teenagers.
Everyday Jesus for Parents
He is teaching me what I’ve known in my head, but not always believed in my heart: I can do nothing apart from Christ, but in him I can do all things.
We may cloak it as “wanting them to do well,” but deep down we are trying to supply some inner need that was meant to be filled by Christ himself.
Remind your daughter that she belongs to a God who will never reject her. She has been chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world.
When our children were teenagers, I prayed for our church’s youth ministers, I supported them, and I made sure my kids signed up and showed up.
One of the best things a church can do for their young people is equip the parents to spiritually invest in their lives.
How grateful I am that, even in the midst of my sin, I will never hear my God say, “Why can’t you just be a better parent?”
