Tommy believed he was entitled to call his girlfriend a “broad.” This was embarrassing to Tommy’s girlfriend and she asked him to stop.
The term always got him a laugh from his peers, so he refused, telling her she was unreasonable.
Tommy found that his good looks and charm were not enough to excuse his hurtful behavior and he lost his girlfriend as a result.
As Tommy and I discussed his options, he agreed that an apology was in order and agreed to make better choices.
If your teen is a Christian, they are to date and marry only those who have a heart after God’s heart.
He was the quarterback of the football team, voted “best looking” at school and was always the life of the party.
As Tommy shared more of his story, it became clear why his girlfriend left him.
When teens are living by Godly morals and standards that have been taught in the home, they make better choices for their dating lives.
God gives some great guidelines in His Word about dating and, as parents, we must reinforce these guidelines in order to offer our teens wisdom on dating.
When Tommy came to visit my office, he was very upset about his girlfriend breaking up with him.
They went to church together, and he could not understand how she could dump him.
How do we help develop character in our teens and help them make good choices? What emanates from the heart is what we believe about God, ourselves and others.Teens find other teens attractive who feel good about themselves and we feel best about ourselves when we’re living true to our heart’s convictions.
