The transition from childhood to adulthood is always hard and filled with countless ups and downs. But even though the teenage years are turbulent, there is a way for parents to help their children become mature adults.
In this week’s episode of the Limitless Spirit Podcast, our host Helen Todd speaks with Gary Chapman; Gary is an author, pastor, and counselor best known for his book “The 5 Love Languages”.
In Helen’s conversation with Gary, you’ll hear about his latest book, “Things I Wish I’d Known Before My Child Became a Teenager”, which shows parents how to help their kids navigate the teenage years and become a mature adult. We talk about necessary social skills to develop in teenagers, how to help them cope with fluctuating emotions, and how parents can model Christ-like behavior to their teenagers.
