The Tongue - Parents of Teens - Real Tools for Parenting Well

The Tongue

 

Those who love to talk will experience the consequences, for the tongue can kill or nourish life. - Proverbs 18:21 (NLT)

With it (the tongue) we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. - James 3:9

What are your convictions? If you hope to control the wild tongues in your family, first you must clean up your own speech. - Rainey

As a couple decide where to draw the line on your adolescent’s use of his tongue. Make your limits specific and understandable to your teen.

As always, be sure to follow through. Argumentative teens almost always need to experience consequences, as they are often used to a parent who gives in and gives up. So talk with your teen, set the limit, and then keep it. - Dr. John Townsend
