If you have teenagers in the house, I think you will appreciate this printable. Teens can often expect grace from us, but fail to extend the same much-desired grace towards us. They feel things in a deeper way and little issues seem much larger… and that can be frustrating to us, as parents, when we say something neutral like, “Do you want ice cream?” and they interpret it as, “You sure better not want ice cream because you’re looking really fat lately!”
After some recent struggles in our own home, I decided to create this “Grace Reminders” sheet. It was very useful in helping me see this child’s perspective. I also asked said child to create one for me! I wanted this child to think through the reasons I should extend grace and the Scripture to support that perspective.
Hope you find this helpful!
