MONTHLY UPDATE - CHOOSING WISELY
What exactly constitutes a wise choice? I would like to think I make wise choices consistently, but the truth of the matter is I don't. Many time I have smacked myself in the forehead and said 'if only I hadn't...' or 'I wish I had...' So if it is hard for us as adults to make wise choices, how much harder is it for your teenagers to do the same? So much of who they are at this point is governed by emotions. And we know emotions are not very helpful in making wise choices, at all!
Choices are and will always be a part of most aspects of our daily lives. How do we help your teens learn how to make those choices count? I would like to encourage you to watch the following video that deals with our teens and their choices. Maybe it will give you a different perspective.
Each Rite of Passage provides two videos for you as a parent to watch. The first video is the "why" video. It explains why you should walk through the Rite of Passage. The other video is the "how to" video providing you with a step-by-step guide in how to set up these Rites of Passage. Here's a description of the associated documents:
- The Kickstarter is the biblical background for each Rite of Passage
- The Parent Guide is an extension of the "how to" video
- The Developmental Guide helps you know what's going on physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually with your teenager
