Dear parents,

We’re starting a two-week series in our Sunday morning Bible study on the topic of conflict, and our first lesson will examine ways teenagers can handle conflicts with their parents.

Using Colossians 3:18-21, we gained insight into God’s desire for our families: that our relationships would be rooted in love, honor, respect, and obedience. Husbands and wives ought to love each other. Parents ought to love their children, and children ought to love their parents.

We believe that students can go through the teenage years without having the kind of explosive conflicts that many people say are inevitable. They WILL have some conflicts (as you know better than I do!) but it’s possible to act in a way that’s respectful, loving, and considerate. We encouraged our students to listen well, speak truth, and keep communication lines open.

Here are some questions you might want to ask your teenager as you discuss this week’s lesson:

• Do you think it’s possible for us to have conflicts or disagreements without arguing and yelling and screaming?

• How might our relationship improve if you knew more of what was going on in our lives as parents?

• How might your decision to honor or dishonor us as your parents affect the rest of the family?

• How do you think your relationship with God is affected by your relationship with us as your parents?

I pray that you and your teenager have some great, healthy dialogue based on this week’s small group session. God bless!
