What are your plans after high school?

Posted on 2/22/2019 by Greg Yoder

I’ve been talking with some parents of a senior in high school whose daughter probably isn’t going to go to college. Why? Well, the grades just aren’t there. Unfortunately, these two individuals were embarrassed and ashamed. And they said as much in front of her. Can you believe it? You say, “I’d never do that.” Have we ever told an embarrassing story about our teen? Have we ever been condescending or disrespectful? You know, we get upset when they do that to us. We may as well hit them in the stomach. And if we don’t get a reaction from our kids when we do it, we’ve probably been doing it too long. Well, change. Ephesians says don’t exasperate our kids—even our nearly adult kids.

Suggested Reading: Ephesians 6:4
