S. = Show Authority. Parents have to be the authority figures in the home, not the child. When parents lose control and don’t lay down and uphold the laws of the home, the children don’t see them as they need to. Parents have to be seen as the ones with authority.
O. = Offer Guidance (be the example). Parents who don’t show their children the right way to live their lives, become parents who raise unruly teenagers. Children need to be shown proper guidance in the home and not have parents expect them to learn it all from their minister(s).
S. = Surrendering Your Time. Nothing shows a child love more than the time you spend with them. Become a part of their life in all areas. This doesn’t mean you have to smother them, but it does mean you need to nurture them with love and care. Communication is key to raising a teenager. Don’t be afraid to tell them that you love them.
