REALIFE Parent Resources
The high school years can be tough not only for your teen, but for you as a parent. Friendships, dating, a pursuit of independence, social media, school pressures, faith and spiritual questions... So many challenging parenting obstacles all jam packed in such a few short years. But, oh how important those years are! At REALIFE, it’s not our desire to take your place as the spiritual leader of your teen. It’s our desire to partner with you as you lead your teen to grow in their faith and live their lives for God.
You have dreams and goals for your teen, and we want to champion those goals with you. Below is a snapshot of actions your teen can take in an effort to grow in their character and faith.
