Entering Teen Territory

Teen Parenting JeNell Buchanan, the small group leader of our Teen Parenting group, understands the learning-on-the-go style that many parents have had to adapt to with their teens. Growing as a parent as teens slowly become adults. But what is important to remember is no parent is alone.

In writing my first “blog,” I’m finding it somewhat similar to my experience raising my now teenage son: I’m entering new territory, learning as I go… feeling confident one moment, and completely confused the next.

What in the world is a “blog” anyway? As a parent of a teenager, am I the only one who’s perplexed about what my teen really wants and needs from me? Am I the only parent who wonders how to raise a teen in the “right” way? Am I the only one who doesn’t even know what a “blog” is? When faced with such doubt, I’ve come to know (though I sometimes forget), that my only hope is in turning to God.

So, that’s my plan for Wednesday night, April 30th at 6:30PM in the Mountainside Cafe. Pastor Tim White, Dr. Marty Folsom, and Nancy McJunkin will share spiritual wisdom in parenting teens from God’s perspective. I’ll be sitting on the edge of my seat, and if you have a teen or preteen, I hope you will be too!
