Note to Parents

We believe you are the primary human force in shaping the lives of your teens. We exist as a ministry to be an aide to you in raising your teens, but we can never replace the impact that you have. Statistics continually show that parents are the biggest influencer on children over friends, media and, yes, youth pastors.

This page contains some helpful resources for you as you wade through the challenges of adolescent teens. God bless you for the work that you do in raising your children!

The Space Between: A Parent's Guide to Teenage Development
by Dr. Walt Mueller
When you started out as a parent, chances are you felt completely unprepared to deal with the challenges of a child. But at some point in your journey, you've probably found yourself feeling confident in your parenting role and abilities. The routine and predicability of your child's life became manageable and fairly easy to navigate. Now that your child is a teenager (or soon-to-be a teen), you may be feeling overwhelmed at times with fear, confusion, frustration, and a lack of understanding. It almost feels like you're starting all over with a screaming, needy, and sometimes whiny child (only much taller and with more attitude!).
