We’ve all heard it before – generation after generation of parents will preface conversations about their teen children with warnings and dreads that make our once precious toddlers sound as if they’ve somehow been replaced by aliens. The Sounding Blog from the Orthodox Christian Network has a new post that is a must read for all parents. It peels back many myths and tells it like it is. While it may read brutal for some, it is our responsibility as “The Parents” to roll up our sleeves and stay the course until our children are prepared to enter independent adult life:

….Don’t fall for the lies. Read on to find out the real truth about teens. You might be in for a shock. This is a lot different than what you’re used to hearing.
