ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your teen starts their day, mention a way they stand out from the crowd in a good way.
At a meal this week, have everyone answer this question: “What is something unique and great about the person sitting next to you?”
Comparison is something we model, whether we realize it or not. Be conscious of how you talk about others and yourself.
Pray that both you and your teen will resist the temptation to compare who you are and what you have to others.
