Teenage life isn’t easy. Next to the formative years, I believe this is the second most crucial stage in any person’s life. In this stage a person experiences so many changes from physiological to emotional changes and many more in between. This is also the time when a person is very curious to experience everything. Sadly, some of these curiosity leads to permanent damages. Thus, this is the time when teenagers need their parents’ love and guidance the most.
I don’t have yet a teenager but few more years, I’ll have one. And few more years, they will be two. I’m quite scared how my will daughters handle these changes in their lives. My confidence that they will not lose the values I taught them lies on what the Bible says on Proverbs 22:6.
I can also help them find worthwhile activities to engage with to satisfy their curiosity rather than allow other people feed them with damaging experiences. Thanks to sites like teensummercamps.com summer camps which offer activities for different teenagers’ needs and personalities. These summer camp activities are safe and wholesome. With these activities their skills and talents will be further enhanced.
As a mother, I have no call on the choices which my daughters will make for their lives. I can only guide, remind and warn them but the final decision will still be on them. It is their lives anyway. But I hope and pray that they will be wise like a serpent but harmless like a dove and they will always fear and love God so they will always be in the right path.
