Spring Training

If you or one of your kids has ever played on a sports team, then you know how much work this “recreational activity” can be.

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

In a way, raising a family is a lot like training for a sport. You have to get up early for practice. You go through the same grueling workout every day. And by the end, you feel mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Kids can lead to some of the most joyful moments in life. But you’re training for the win … for the victory on the other side of the test. And hardship is part of the package deal.

So if your son or daughter is struggling right now … don’t back down. This is exactly what you’ve been training for!
