… if parents, pastors and others who have responsibilities with young people join in sharing their troubles and insights, their concerns and strengths, they can become a community… When parents are in community with others who share similar responsibilities and who believe in a similar grace, there is growth. They discover that they are not the first or the only ones who are doing a less-than-perfect job dealing with the adolescent in their home… When they share needs and strengths, they form a coalition that makes for a stronger ministry than if any tried to go it alone… a ministry that is able to nurture the new life that is forming in the adolescent personality and, at the same time, the new life burgeoning in the parent.
