Spiritual Character


Do you believe your family should go to church every Sunday? Do you believe that you need to sit together in the service?

Hi, I’m Mark Gregston… with Parenting Today’s Teens.

Questions every parent needs to answer. The responses will reveal your level of commitment to lead your family in their journey towards God.

How about this…

Are you gonna make your kids attend youth group? Or go on missions trips? Would you allow your kids to attend a different church if that’s where their friends are? Will you pray together as a family?

As I stir the pot on these issues, I hope you’ll take considerable time to think intentionally about the spiritual character of your family… and how you and your spouse can foster a strong and growing relationship with God.

Valentine’s Day


It’s a banner day for the greeting card industry! You’ll likely buy a card and gift for your sweetheart today. But what about your kids?

Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.

Every day is an opportunity to build into your kids the love and value they crave. And perhaps today … Valentine’s Day … will remind you that the teens in your life need to be celebrated. They’ll naturally gravitate to the people who genuinely value them … so make that a priority in your home!

Don’t compare your teen to others. Tell your daughter you love her. Don’t move away from your son when he makes a mistake.

On Valentines Day, and every day, let your teen sense your love.
