On this week's episode of the Warfare Parenting Podcast, I am so excited to welcome back Author Connie Albers, as she talks about finding growth and grace in parenting. Connie shares that as parents, we have the freedom to pivot parenting techniques as our children walk through different seasons of life. Pivoting isn't a sign of being a bad parent, but instead allows us to focus specifically on where our child is in their walk through life and maximize their growth in love and grace. Connie also explains that there is no "one size fits all" to parenting and every child is uniquely created in the image of God. Therefore, parents have to learn to embrace the unique growth of their children and find ways to walk alongside them as they grow into the man or woman that God created them to be. Who is Connie Albers? Connie Albers has spent much of her adult life as a homeschool mom to five and mompreneur with an outreach and ministry to parents through her speaking and various leadership roles. Balancing her roles as a wife, speaker, homeschooler, consultant, and active volunteer, she has learned to discover resilience and joy within the stop and go of life. She is a respected leader, social media enthusiast, and trusted mom who understands the challenges of balancing the demands of life, work and homeschool.  More recently, Connie is equipping parents with her book Parenting beyond the Rules by NavPress, which outlines positive approaches to parenting today’s teenagers. Her enthusiasm for helping others navigate social media led to her taking a post at Social Media Marketing World. Connie’s mission is to equip moms to live their life with confidence and joy. Things We Talk About in this Episode: Why is there freedom in pivoting in parenting and how should we use pivoting in parenting? How do we build a love of scripture in our childrens' lives and why is that important?  Why do we need to recognize that we won't always get things right as parents and how can we be the best parent possible for our kids?

While this can be a challenging time of transition for parents and teens, you can parent well and build a strong relationship with your children even through the teen years.
