Keeping Teens on Your Side

by Jennifer Valentine-Miller

I spent a good and constructive day with the City Women team. They were tackling a national concern entitled “Keeping Teens on Your Side.” The day was spent listening to the personal stories of parents and teenage guests, and valid information from a senior youth leader from City Gates Church  who spoke about the best way to keep relationships with teens is to keep it real, as well as:

1. Get to know their friends
2. When you are going through something it can really effect young people.
3. Teens biggest struggles is Relationships.
4. Be friends, yes, and set boundaries.
5. Balance form views with true understanding.
6. Monitor internet use and phone calls, eating disorders, alcohol consumption, and signs of self-harming.
