In the last session of our online parenting class we talked about Reacting vs. Responding when communicating with your teenager. If you missed it, you can go to part 1 here and part 2 here to check it out.
Today, we want to continue that thought by sharing with you a very practical tip to help you stay calm when your teenager is not calm.
It’s called the Rewind and the Flash Forward.
You can watch this short video to learn how you can try it out this week in your home.
I hope this helps you to apply what we have been learning. Remember that your calmness with your teenager reminds them that you are fighting to rest in Jesus and not to be tossed to and from with every external circumstance. Every moment with your teenager is an opportunity for you to not merely be a professing believer in the glorious Gospel of Jesus but to allow the Gospel to influence you so that you function as a Gospel believer as well. This benefits you and your student at the same time. Rest in what Jesus accomplished for you today!
In our next session we will give ourselves an “Attitude Check”. I am looking forward to it, and I hope you are too. If I can pray for you please contact me!
Have a great week,
