It has now been some years since I had a teenager in the home, so it is easier to reflect on parenting adolescents. I see with more clarity what a formative and challenging time it is for a child and how to approach it as a parent. Based on this, I want to offer some general guidelines based on Galatians 6:1-5 (CSB). Those words from Paul were to guide believers on how to engage someone who is caught in a trap they don’t recognize. He writes, Brothers and sisters, if someone is overtaken in any wrongdoing, you who are spiritual, restore such a person with a gentle spirit, watching out for yourselves so that you also won’t be tempted. Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone considers himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. Let each person examine his own work, and then he can take pride in himself alone, and not compare himself with someone else. For each person will have to carry his own load.
