Performance-Driven Teens


In our culture, there is a near constant push for achievement.  We’re encouraged to be beautiful, athletic and successful in order to gain value.  The problem comes when that attitude seeps into the way we relate to our teens.  On this edition of Parenting Today’s Teens, Mark Gregston and special guest, Sean Meade provide some intentional ways moms and dads can communicate their unconditional love to their teen.  Is your kid feeling the pressure to perform?  Listen to Parenting Today’s Teens!

No matter what struggles or triumphs your teen is going through now, as parents we must always pray for our teens. Our pocket-sized book, Prayers for my Teen proves that great things come in small packages. Each page includes a heartfelt prayer and a verse of Scripture that focuses on the important issues for families today. Click here to order, only $6.99!
