Segment 1 (00:00) Todd opens up with 12 lessons for teenager’s parents, in which parents should be merciful and gracious when dealing with a child rather than condescending and demeaning. God never speaks condescendingly to us as his children.
Segment 2 (08:06) While certain people lose in life, we as parents should teach children to place their value in Jesus and not on personal achievements. It shouldn’t be placed in your work either, as teenagers often take a humble first job. Teaching teens there are places in life and you must play your role during your time in life is critical.
Segment 3 (18:03) Does this mean we should be soft in the workplace? No, we should be biblical. Discipling someone may be better than disciplining them. The world will treat your children cruelly, so you should disciple them and prepare them for what to expect. Also, remember you are a sinner too, and both of you need a savior.
