Helpful aids for parents/grandparents of teenagers...

“But watch out! Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren. Deuteronomy 4:9

      The battle over our students is great and we, as parents, must take the lead in teaching truth to our children. Sunday school is the next best thing but is second to our responsiblities as mom, dad, grandad &grandma.
      Needing answers those troubling questions that face or in some cases swallow our students up?

       Question/statements like "what is truth.....is there any truth?" -- "I want to have an abortion." -- "all religions lead to God." -- "what are the parameters for sex?" -- "My friend is an athiest" -- "
