8 Lies Your Teen Believes

Mar 03, 2015 / Life Stage: Pre-Teens and Teenagers     

What lies does your teen believe? I’m Mark Merrill with today’s Family Minute. Most parents are concerned with the lies their teenagers are telling, but few parents consider the lies their teens are hearing. So here are some lies your teen might believe and how to combat them with truth. First, your teen believes no one understands them. So create a safe place where they’re comfortable sharing their feelings with you. Second, your teen believes you don’t want them to have fun. Be sure to explain that your boundaries are meant to keep them safe and to give them a better life—not to keep them from enjoying life. Know all the lies your teen believes and how to combat them.
