虽然这是段落肯定是父母，但它对所有参与信仰的人都有影响。作为父母，我可以证明惩罚一个人自己的孩子可能是艰难的。有些父母有竞争对手 the house at 6:30 or 7 to get to school and work on time and they don't get home until 6 some nights. Then they have to think about dinner, sports practices, homework, and other chores. But, we know we need to taketime to intentionally teach our teens what is truly important in life - surrendering ourselves to the One who gaveHimself for us.
鼓励家长 by helping them know that while it's tempting to think that this can only be done through calm, 30-minute family devotions, before breakfast and after supper - this isn't the description we get from Scripture. While having these 30 minute extended devotions are great, 帮助父母不是 通过提醒他们，如果他们是可以的，那就令人沮丧 don't do that every night or even once a week.
被召唤为学生提供独特的机会投资青少年&父母。与父母联系，帮助他们看到什么是 important is regular moments of discipleship. Deut. 6 indicates that the regular 当天的Ins-outs应该 be about teaching our teens about what it means to love God. Encourage parents to create a prayer-point on their travels. That is, a regular spot that once you get to it youstop and pray. You stop the song playing on the radio, you stop any other conversation, and you pray. You can also use what is accomplished on a sports team to help them understand that that is how the church works. God has gifted us uniquely and it takes all of us coming together in His power to work to see His mission fulfilled and the gospel work in us. It could be making sure that teens see their parents reconciling after an argument that is overheard. And the parents tell them that they forgive one another, 总是， because that is what God does for us. No grudges, no bringing it back up, just pure forgiveness like we receive.
