The choices teens make can affect the rest of their lives, whether those are choices about which secondary school to attend or social choices.

Christian decision making and choices begin with a willingness to submit your thoughts, intentions and desires to God. Examining God’s word, establishing God-pleasing priorities, seeking wise counsel and praying allow you to make godly choices, according to Paul Tautges. While teens are continually bombarded with choices and pressure using their peers, you can teach your child to wait on God, make decisions based on faith and think through the consequences before making a choice. You can use games to show your teen about choices.
