The Need for Value

#2119

Does your teenager feel valued and accepted at home? If not, they’ll go lookin’ somewhere else!

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

As parents, we do a ton of stuff for our kids. We take care of their physical needs, cart them around to school events, and give them things our parents never did for us. But all these efforts fall short of giving our kids the thing they crave most. Value. Acceptance. Belonging.

These are the virtues that build self-esteem. It gives them confidence to say “no” to temptation. And though they often find value from good grades or excelling at sports … the only place a teen can find true value is at home.

So, I’ll ask you again … does your teen feel valued? Only you can provide the true sense of worth and acceptance they so desperately need.
