Parent Toolbox

Hey Parents,
Every couple of weeks you will receive tools within this link that will hopefully encourage you, equip you and give you some direction concerning problems, issues, or just things to ponder as you deal with your teen.  Please know we are always available for help, direction or those moments when you just need someone to listen.
 
My personal cell is 864-350-7785.
Standing with you,
Pastor Anthony
 

How to Help Your Kids & Teens Deal with Anxiety, Part 1

Hello Student Ministry Parents and Families:

Do you know what the most common mental concern is in the United
States is? It is Anxiety Disorder. It effects 40 million adults. It also is the most
common mental struggle for teens. Nearly 32% of adolescents have suffered
from serious anxiety at some point.

This month for our Online Parenting Class, we want to offer you some
helpful, loving advice and guidance. We do not want to ignore this growing problem
that may be also impacting your family. Watch this great video resource as soon
as you can.

Not every feeling of anxiety and worry is sin or evil. We know that there
are many things that can affect your teen and their feelings of anxiety. We
do have a powerful God with powerful promises. As you pray over your teen this
month, whether they are struggling with anxiety or not, consider a few of these
verses. Pray these verses over your teen this month:

– Luke 12:22-26: May my teen not be worried or anxious about the
superficial things of this world.
– Ps. 27:1: God, allow my teen to realize that they can run to you in moments
of anxiety and you will protect them.
– Ps. 118:6-7: Guide my teen as they go through their day today. Allow them
to not worry about what other people say, think, or do.
– Phil. 4:6-7: Lord, give my teen peace in their heart and their mind.

We are available to talk, pray, or just listen to you and/or your teen. If you are
seeking professional advice or help, please also let us know. We would love to
suggest a Godly professional in the Greenville area.
