Changes Teenagers Need of Their Father to Improve Relationship

Have you ever had the desire for someone to change their negative behavior because it was destroying or damaging the relationship? I am quite sure your answer is probably, yes! As a parent, I have made many mistakes but I always valued our teenagers’ perspective on things. Sometimes we disagreed but we did everything we could to prevent damaging the relationship. My greatest desire was to always respect my adolescents’ opinions.

Video: Stategies for a father to improve relationship with their teenager

Listed below are changes teenagers said they needed of their father to improve their relationship:

 Sierra: “My father and I have a good relationship. But I know I have a lot of hostility against him because of how much he drinks. I don’t. normally let the hostility out but sometimes I do. I know sometime it hurt but it hurts me to watch him drink every day.”

Sara wants her father to stop drinking because of the damage the alcohol is doing to her father physically and emotionally. She was very concerned about the impact on their relationship. I hope that one day Sierra’s father will stop drinking so that her life will be better as they rebuild their relationship. Her father needs to seek help to stop drinking. I pray and hope he will make a commitment to get help.

Frank: “My pop needs to listens to me more often

 Vanessa: “My father needs to talk to me instead of arguing with me.”

Dallas: “My father needs to spend more time with me and be there for me without yelling at me. Talk to me instead of yelling at me.”

Tammy: “My daddy needs to be in my life more.  Daddy needs to understand where I am coming from about everything.”

Hillary: “I wish my dad would come to see me more often and spend time with me. I also want my dad to love me in spite of all the mistakes I have made!”

Ruby: “My father needs to talk to me more often and don’t tell me he’s going to do things for me and then he doesn’t follow through”

Simple Ways Parents Can Discipline A Teenager

One of the most challenging aspects of being a parent is disciplining a teenager when they have made wrong choices; especially when they have violated your trust.  Parents also struggle with who will be the disciplinarian when actually both should be. It is imperative that parents work in unison when it comes to discipline. If you don’t, the teenager will foster disagreement between their parents.

A teenager knows how to steal your heart with their eyes and pitiful looks when being disciplined.  Don’t give into the teenager unless you have strong reasons to believe the negative behavior will discontinue.  Listed below are some guidelines you should follow when it comes to disciplining your teenagers.

  1. Disciplining should be based on the teenager’s current negative behavior: Avoid bring up the past even though it might be the same negative behavior. Your teenager already knows about the problem.  You should remain focused on dealing with the current problem. Make sure you listen and avoid yelling and screaming. Communicate your feelings about the situation with a calm and strong voice.  Above all, it is very important that you listen carefully to your teenager.
  2. Never use discipline as a dumping ground for your personal conflict with others: If you have a personal problem with someone else, please don’t allow it to impact how you respond to your teenager. If you can’t calm yourself, you need to wait until later before you deal with your teenager.  You need to focus on thinking clearly and calmly as you deal with your teenager’s issues.
  3. Use appropriate disciplinary actions for each teenager: Every teenager is different so choose the right disciplinary actions that will give the most benefits in changing the teenager’s negative behavior.  When a teenager is very popular, a good method is to take away privileges. (No phone, no friends for two weeks, etc.). For example, our son was popular, smart, involved with sports and had an abundance of friends.  So we had to utilize a variety of disciplinary actions. His punishments included taking away the car or phone and staying away from friends.  If you have a teenager that sits at home, it’s more challenging to discipline them. For example, our daughter focused on one friend at a time. She loved staying at home. So we decided her punishment would be to walk around the block. She would say “This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.”  But the punishment was very effective and changed her behavior.
  4. Use a variety of disciplinary actions to deter the teenager’s negative behavior: By utilizing the same disciplinary action over and over again, the teenager will eventually become desensitized.  Parents should employ multiple types of disciplinary actions to deter the teenager’s negative behavior.  Apply consequences that will not put you in bondage, the teenager should be affected more than the parents.
  5. Disciplinary actions should be designed to eliminate or minimize the teenager’s negative behavior: When a teenager’s negative behavior does not change after disciplining, there could be some event that is causing the negative behavior that you don’t know.  You should sit down with your child and present them with an opportunity to express their feelings. It is the parent’s responsibility to listen intently to what the teenager has articulated or not articulated. Avoid becoming frustrated if you don’t understand your teenager’s issues. Your teenager’s negative behavior could be a result of stress, substance abuse, bullying, divorce, relationships, pregnancy, jealousy, academics, sexual transmitted diseases, rape, peer pressure, incest, sibling rivalry or other issues.  If you need outside assistance with your teenager don’t hesitate to get help.  Make sure you seek the right type of counselor for your teenager.
  6. Discipline must be a continuous and consistent process which sets boundaries for the teenager: Avoid reducing your teenager’s punishment because you are worn down as a result of the teenager’s constant nagging. Your teen will take advantage of your weakness. You and your spouse should be in agreement about the disciplinary action.
  7. Discipline shows the teenager the consequences of breaking those boundaries: Teenagers need to know and understand that there are boundaries not to cross and to understand the consequences for breaking those boundaries. Teenagers need to understand that boundaries are established for their protection.
  8. Avoid disciplining a teenager out of anger:  Try to understand the reason(s) for negative behavior:  Parents, you must stay in control when using discipline.  Do not yell nor use words that will damage your teenager’s self-esteem. You will be more effective in dealing with the situation, when you treat your teen with respect.
  9. Discipline the teenager with a caring and compassionate heart: Parents, you should always discipline your teenager in ways that do not attack your teen’s character.  Let your teenager know you are concerned about potential negative consequences on his or her life. It’s important to use words that build up your teenager instead of tearing them down.
  10.  Award the teenager for positive behavior: It is appropriate to reward your teenager for making right choices, especially when the teenager has worked hard to improve their behavior.  Parents should be eager to reward their teenager for the small improvements which will hopefully lead to great success for the teenager and peace within the home.

Family And Friends Too Selfish to See The Needs of Other

I don’t know the frequency in which I have read John 5:1-15, but each time I meditate on those scriptures, God seems to give me additional insight. This story is about an invalid at the pool of Bethesda.

Each year, the Lord would send an angel to the pool to perform physical healing for those able to get into the pool. John 5:3 says, “Here a great number of disabled people used to lie the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for 38 years.” As I continue to picture this story in my mind, I can visualize a multitude of people rushing to the pool every year around the same time just for healing. The people were expe­riencing physical healing and joy.

 As I picture the invalid in his home, I can hear him saying with tears in his eyes, “next year someone will help me into the pool.

 However, I see an invalid in despair and with­out hope because he is not able to put himself in the pool. As he saw excitement in the eyes of those healed, sadness entered into his heart because the angel of the Lord had left. The invalid had to wait another year. So, once again they carried him back home.

 As I picture the invalid in his home, I can hear him saying with tears in his eyes, “next year someone will help me into the pool. Someone will carry me on their back into the pool and I will be healed this time.”

A year passed and the invalid returned to the pool. I can see his friends carrying him to the pool. Once again, they placed him in the same spot just watching others get healed in the pool of Bethesda. The Bible does not tell us who carried the invalid to the pool, but we can be assured they weren’t strangers. So then, why did they not help him into the pool? I believe they were too busy watching the miracles being performed, or they just didn’t care. Whatever the reasons, the invalid persevered. He never gave up. He kept returning to the pool even though he could not put himself into the pool.

 Jesus saw the invalid lying there and quietly asked, “Do you want to get well?” and the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool, while I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” But the master healer Jesus Christ said, “Get up!   Pick  up your mat and walk.” We know the invalid did walk. In this story, we see there are uncontrollable situations that only Jesus Christ has the capacity to handle. Sometimes our friends and family are too busy or too selfish to help. or, maybe they just have too many problems of their own.

 However, Jesus  is always available to guide us. He quietly touches us, and others can’t see until we receive the blessings. Jesus is perfect and knows all our needs and wants. The invalid received his joy through physical healing but later Jesus touched his spirit by saying “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.”

 The heart must change to receive spiritual healing. We must learn to put self behind and reach out to those in pain less something worse happens to us. It is time for us to put selfishness to death and give life to love, faith and hope by helping others.

Shall We Gather At The River

I had to share this poem with our followers.  The poem was written by Arlene (mom).  My wife and I have adopted Arlene as our mom.  She lives in Tennessee and she sends us a card every month to encourage us.  She never fails to send holiday greeting cards nor birthday cards.  She prays for us every day and we know mom will see her creator soon.  I can personally feel it in mom’s poem.  We have missed our parents because they are in heaven.  However, God has given us an opportunity to share our love with Arlene (mom).  She is a remarkable and caring woman.  We hope you will enjoy this poem and pray that God will continue to bless mom. We love our mom very much.  She is deeply rooted in our hearts. Thank you God!

 

Shall We Gather At The River

 

Shall we gather at the river

The words of the song said

And suddenly, it became so real

As it played out in my head

 

I was standing there with others

When this vision came to me

As a figure all dressed in white

Standing right by my side, was He

 

Then I felt an arm around my waist

 I glanced and saw my precious Neal

My heart beat nearly out my chest

When I realized, it seemed so real

 

Then suddenly there was another face

One that I’d longed to see

Her face so full of joy and love

Her mom once more to see

 

Then I felt someone take my hand

There stood my precious son

He looked so proud and happy

Among all those souls he’d won

 

Thank you Jesus for this dream

When I felt like I had a broken heart

I’m on my way, please hold my spot

Where never again will we be apart

 

Then we can wait for the other two

I pray they will find their way

To that gathering at the river

Where we will always stay

 

And finally the circle will be unbroken

As our loved ones, family, and friends are there

With my precious Savior

 Who paid the price for all to share

Love

This article was updated to include additional scriptures as well as an audio file.  Please see link at the bottom of article.

L.O.V.E (Life Line, Obsession (passion), Victory, Enhances

(1 John 4:7-21, Luke 10:25-37, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Points to Ponder

  1. You should always be prepared to respond to an unexpected question regarding eternal life (Luke 10:25-26).
  2. Jesus expects you to love God with your heart, soul, strength and mind and to love your family and neighbors as you love yourself (Luke 10: 27).
  3. There are people who will not show you love nor respect but will take advantage of you (Luke 10:28-30).
  4. There are religious leaders and fellow believers that will see you drowning in misery and will not show you love (Luke 10:31-32).
  5. Jesus expects us to show love to our neighbor regardless of their condition or position (Luke 10:33-35).
  6. There are times when you must show love by utilizing your time and financial resources to help a family member, friend or stranger (Luke 10:36-35).
  7. Jesus wants you and your family to be a good neighbor to those needing love and mercy. (Luke 36-37)
  8. Love is unselfish, unconditional and always seeking to help others (1Corinthians 13:4-7).

Something to Consider

“Love is a very powerful word but many of us take it for granted. Jesus explained to an expert of the Jewish Law what it took to inherit eternal life. These simple scriptures truly define our priority as love relates to God and others. The only way we can truly give love and accept love is to be bound by these following words. Jesus tells us we must love God with our 1. Heart, 2. Soul, 3. Strength, 4. Mind and 5. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Our heart is the key to supplying nutrients throughout our body which is essential for our survival. The soul is our life-line that returns to God. Our strength helps us to give love and our mind helps us to stay focus on Christ’s love. Our neighbor could be anyone, your friend, boss, stranger, church family, next door neighbor and someone who has hurt you knowingly or unknowingly.

These simple words are the key to love. If we truly love God, we should show our love as Christ extended his love to everyone. Jesus is always available to show His Father’s love so others might come to know Him. The world would be a better place to live if we follow God’s truths. We must drown ourselves in God’s gift of love so it might overflow to the lives of others. If you feel, you are not being loved, express your feelings to God. He will give you the desires of your heart.

God is love and you are a benefactor of that love through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. You will find true love when you love God with all your heart, soul, strength & mind. God’s love is patient, kind, protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres, rejoices with the truth, not easily angered, never fails, does not envy, does not boast, it’s not proud, not rude, not self-seeking, & does not keep record of wrongs. As a child of God, you must show his love daily and your heart will be content. Avoid debating with people who don’t agree with your  faith. You should love them too with your heart.

Forgive

This updated post focuses on how important it is for you to forgive those that hurt you to the core of your heart.  When you forgive, it will help you to maintain your Faith. It will give you strength to overcome Obstacles. It gives you the ability to Repent when you are wrong. It guides you closer to God and it will prevent an Infection of hatred from flourishing in your life.  When you forgive, you will also have Victory over your own life without others influencing you in a negative manner. It will keep you from giving in to Evil because of the pain you suffered from someone.

F.O.R.G.I.V.E (Faith, Obstacles, Repent, God, Infection, Victory, Evil)

Joseph’s rejection and forgiveness (Genesis 37:1-11, 50:15-20)

Solomon’s Prayer (1 Kings 8:46-50)

Jesus’ commands (Matthew 6:14-15, Mark 11:25-26, Luke 17:3-4, Ephesians 4:26-27)

Points to Ponder

  1. You must let go of the bitterness you have toward those who have hurt you (Genesis 50:15-17).
  2. Do not hold grudges against those that are jealous of you but forgive them and you will have joy in your life (Genesis 50:18-20).
  3. You must forgive people who sin against you just like you expect God to forgive you (1 King 8:50).
  4. If you don’t forgive people who violated your trust, God will not forgive you (Matthew 6:14-15, Mark 11:25-26).
  5. It is your responsibility as a Christian to forgive people regardless of the number of times they have hurt you (Luke 17:3-4).

Something to Consider

Is there someone in your life that has hurt you to the core of your heart? Your answer is probably yes! You are so angry with them because you don’t understand why someone who claims to love you would hurt you so badly. You might blame yourself or wonder what you did to deserve a broken-heart.

Life is very complex and challenging. However, we all fall short of the glory of God because of our sinful nature. It’s sin that caused an individual to hurt you. Just like it was sin that caused Jesus to suffer and die on the cross for you. He also died for the person that broke your heart and violated your trust. God holds each of us accountable for our own sins.

God  gives you a simple process for healing your broken heart. He wants you to rely on Christ as the source of your strength. Your healing process will begin when you forgive the person or persons that hurt your heart. It will not be easy but when you let go you will find wonderful peace in your life. When you forgive, you are no longer in bondage but free. Enjoy your freedom, starting today, as you forgive those who have hurt you. Remember! You can’t rely on others to heal your broken heart only God can.

Your encouragement will build their self-esteem and help your children become positive, successful adults. Do not fear expressing your love to your children. You are investing in their future. Success to parenting is about applying your life skills toward the development of your children because of your love for them.
