Everyday The Mom
“You stop talking and don’t tell me to stop talking, I’m the mom.” Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. Perhaps you’ve never entered into the teen zone of angry and angrier but I have. I was there. What’s crazy is that our anger can actually stem from love. We see the bad choices our teen is making and we just want them to stop and listen so we yell and then they yell. It goes from bad to worse.
The book of James says; “Be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to become angry because man’s anger doesn’t produce the righteous life God desires.” I like how the message Bible delivers James 1; “Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you’re a listener when you’re anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! For starters it means listenng to Proverbs 14:17; “She who foams up quickly and flies into a passion deals foolishly.” God can take care of you and your teen. Let go, stop yelling and don’t give up…everyday.
