The mission of the Heartlight Ministries Foundation and Parenting Today’s Teens is to provide as many resources as possible to help them as they walk with their child through the oftentimes-turbulent teenage years.  These resources are of various sorts, all aimed at giving parents tools to deal with issues that arise with their teen.  Here’s a short listing of resources with links to more information about each.
