Discernment and Moderation in a Permissive Culture

Special Guest: Chelsea Cameron

These days, activities and behaviors that were once off-limits are now openly accepted—and even promoted. So what can parents do to counterbalance the negative influence of society? This weekend on Parenting Today’s Teens, Mark Gregston coaches parents on how to teach their children discernment in a permissive culture.

Teen Peer Pressure

WEEKEND RADIO PODCAST: What’s that saying every parent uses?  “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?”  You know … chances are that if leaping off a bridge would allow him to fit in … your teen will take that plunge!  On this edition of Parenting Today’s Teens, Mark Gregston, joined by special guest Bill Ziegler, explains the pull of teen peer pressure … and how parents can counteract its strong, and potentially dangerous, influence.  A helpful discussion … with Parenting Today’s Teens!

If you’re in the Vancouver, British Columbia area, Mark will be hosting a Tough Guys and Drama Queens Seminar at the Langley Events Centre Hall next Sunday, November 3rd. For more information, please visit our events page at www.heartlightministries.org/parentingtodaysteens/events/.
