I am moving the sharing of hurting parents to this post. If you have a rebellious or wayward child, this group could be a great encouragement to you. You can see the original post here.
If you are hurting because of the decisions your children are making, this can be a place of encouragement.
As a pastor, I have learned that there may be no more hurting group of people in the world, than parents who are concerned for a son or daughter who is making poor choices.
So, in December of 2008, I posted with the goal of encouraging parents of wayward children.
The most effective aspect of the post was that it was the beginning of a small community. After the post, several began to share their struggles with one another in the comments and to pray. The discussion continues. To date, there are over 200 comments – – many of them quite lengthy.
In fact, there are so many comments readers are finding it difficult to read them all. As a result, I am suggesting that we move the encouragement and discussion to this post.
You are invited to join the discussion.
