i found raising 3 teenagers is communication!! trying to set good examples,believe it or not,your teens are watching everything you do!!when my 19 yr old was 16.he wanted to go out with some friends,i would tell him "listen to your heart,if you feel something is not right.just listen to your feelings inside and go home..you have a voice inside you,called jesus..just listen".then when he went out the door,i prayed and asked god to protect him!!thats all i could do as a parent..for the record,my son had bad feelings 1 night and he decided to go home..(he was home in 1 hour).the next day he was told,some time after my son left a friend house..a couple people(friend of friends) started fighting and someone had a gun...so my point is,kids do listen when you think there not..most importantly,when you are a praying parent your children are protected.. so communication and prayer!!
