Note from Josh: Teens Need to Feel Loved

A question for you: When do you think teens need to most feel loved?

When you find out they’re pregnant?
When you learn of their addiction(s)? 
When they tell you they’re turning from Christianity?

For sure, teens need to feel loved in these high-stress moments! But a new study suggests that it’s how parents react to normal, daily conflict with their teens that determines whether the teens feel loved on a daily basis.
Don’t miss this point: Parental warmth, note the researchers, needs to be conveyed on the same day as the conflict — though the warmth and conflict don’t need to be related. 
Read the study summary here and let me know what you think.

Until the whole world knows God’s love,

Josh D. McDowell
