As a mom I have worked on my kids character, academics and now as they are reaching adulthood we have focused a lot of energy on discussions and lessons on what “real life” will be like.
My daughter and I started discussing how to interact with people yesterday. There is so much to learn about having good adult relationships!
You MUST choose to put your resources towards what is most important to YOU!
- Do you teach this to your kids?
- Do you help them not to be come overwhelmed as they look at the long, long list of things that must be accomplished each week?
- Do you show them how to take the small amount of money and set aside a portion for wants, needs and giving?
Real life is really messy.

Grown up faith is less about attending church, listening to sermons and singing praise songs and more about becoming who God wants you to be by listening to him speak. Now don't get me wrong--finding a church home is REALLY important. But there is WAY more to being a Christian than attending the "right church."
Society says that teenagers are hard to deal with and are rebellious. This is not surprising. I think as parents, we often treat teens like they are still little kids and yet expect them to act like adults.
It is very confusing for everyone.
