Today’s culture has spawned a teenage cutting epidemic in our teen population. Many parents may not know what to do.
Today’s One Minute Parenting provides important insight on the topic of teenage cutting.
Millions claim cutting themselves relieves their pain.
It’s the pain that comes from the chaos and insecurity of a life without boundaries and no one to enforce them.
The truth is, kids are sinning with impunity today!
What they’re trying to do, without being cognitively aware of it, is to atone for their own sin. All they know is that shedding their own blood makes them feel better–but only until they indulge in another dark deed without proper justice.
Be open to the fact that today’s world has brought hell to our children’s doorstep.
If you discover your child’s shameful activities, don’t freak out. Apply appropriate discipline; love your child; and remind them that Christ has already shed His blood for all sin.
