TEENS / TEENAGERS (AGES 13 TO 19)
I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give
him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD. ~ 1 Samuel 1:27–28
Whether you are a parent of a teenager or reminiscent of your own adolescence, we could ALL write a book about the teenage years. They are the rebellious, fun filled and frustrating times for both parents and kids with ages ending in "teen" numbers. Older teens (18 and 19) are also considered "young adult", though some parents consider ages 13 to 19 reminiscent of the toddler stage and this is why the teen years are such a challenge.
