For most parents, the thought of giving their son or daughter more control is absolutely terrifying. But it’s the only way to help teens develop into mature adults!
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
Kids these days are fighting for control. They’re longing to take the principles they’ve learned and apply them to their own lives. But when parents are unwilling to let go … teens feel as though they’re left with no other option than to take control by force.
Now I’m from Texas, so I like to think of it this way. When you’re sitting on top of a horse that’s out-of-control, you’re supposed to let go of the reins … not pull back.
So are you giving your teen control of his life? Don’t wait until he starts fighting for it. Instead, begin handing over the reins today.
