Dealing with Your Rebellious Teenager
When your teenager is estranged from you and God and is making unwise (and perhaps downright awful) choices, it’s natural to feel hopeless and helpless. Perhaps you have already done everything you know to do—you have talked with them at length, applied consequences, asked others for help, and prayed desperately, but still you see no change in your child’s life or choices.
Barbara Miller Juliani draws from her own experience of rebellion and also from decades of ministry to families to encourage weary parents that they can lean hard into the Lord for help in this difficult season. She walks readers through biblical truths about God that will remind them that he is aware of their situation and struggles, that he is near to help, and that he is calling them to walk in faith that results in small, tangible ways to love their teenager.
