We all want our teens to become responsible adults someday, but how do we do it? And what is our ultimate goal anyway?
Our oldest son is turning 18 this month, so I have been pondering these questions for a long time. And with 3 teenagers in the house (plus 5 others who will be teens someday), we have a lot of discussions about what should be allowed and what is expected and where to draw the lines.
Sometimes finding the right balance between the boundaries we place on our teens and how much freedom we allow them can be confusing. Today, I’m sharing our family’s philosophy on this subject over at Life of a Homeschool Mom. Please pop on over there to read Balancing Boundaries and Freedom with your Teen and let me know what you think!
