Are you worried your teenagers are missing out on the good life? Do you find yourself wondering when they’re going to stop complaining and start living?
You aren’t alone, but what can be done? No matter how hard you try they just keep missing the best things in life.
For the past few years, my wife and I have been in “teenager land” with four of our kids in the throes of various silly teen phases. I was ready to pull my hair out when I read a great book that pointed out my mistake: teenagers don’t listen to their parents… duh! I felt so foolish, but what to do?
The book cleverly pointed out that as a parent I can surround our family with great people who can say things to my teenagers that I NEVER could. Did it work? Roger that!! I now have excellent friends, family, and others giving great wisdom to my teens!
Today’s guest is just such a person. While he’s not speaking to my teens, he’s been speaking great things to kids since my wife was in his computer class in high school! Brent Gill has lived a good life. He’s got a ranch. He’s been on the radio for over 20 years, and recently he started performing weddings!
