As the wise men sought Jesus, seek wisdom from God
The adolescent years of raising your children can be very trying. These are transition years when your children aren’t child-like, but they are not adults either. However, if you can be successful in the following two areas, you will have gone a long way to helping your children grow safely and maturely into their adult years. This section provides information on those two key areas: Teaching your children how to take responsibility for their own behavior and teaching them to avoid having pre-marital sex.

Boundaries With Kids
By Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend
PROBLEM: You have a child that doesn’t take responsibility for his or her behavior.

This book will help you to see the issues underlying your child’s bad behavior. You can then stop your nagging and the desire to control your child. This is done by helping your children learn self-control by setting boundaries, which include consequences. The book practically does this, by teaching you the ten boundary principles that children need to know. It then shares six steps for implementing boundaries in your children’s lives.

When you have implemented proper boundaries as outlined in “Boundaries With Kids” you can help your children develop a godly character and become emotionally healthy adults.

Why Wait?
What You Need to Know About the Teen Sexuality Crisis
By Josh McDowell and Dick Day
“Why Wait” is a very valuable resource for parents to use in helping their children avoid the disastrous consequences of premarital sex. This book is so powerful, because it has many poignant, sad stories from the teens and young adults who engaged in premarital sex.

This book covers the lies that the media tell your children about premarital sex and the myth of “free sex”. It also details many reasons why kids have premarital sex. The second half of the book tells many physical, spiritual, emotional and relational reasons why to wait until marriage to have sex.

“Why Wait” then covers how to practically avoid having premarital sex, by setting boundaries, rules, having controlled dates and having an escape plan. The book closes with chapters on God’s forgiveness for sexual sins and how to handle the situation of your child failing in this area.
