Would you know where to look if someone you knew experienced an unexpected pregnancy? What resources are even available to both those having an unintended pregnancy and the parents of those teens? On this episode of Warframe Parenting, we welcome back licensed counselor Tina Yeager to talk about the resources available to teens and parents when going through an unexpected pregnancy as well as ways to create support groups to help fauster that young mother as she carries her child.  Tina discusses multiple ways for parents to find and create resources to generate an environment of encouragement and love for them in a period that can be filled with uncertainty and fear. We hope this series has helped give parents a roadmap to walk with their teen or young adult through the uncertainties of an unexpected pregnancy, and where you can look to find resources that encourage and equip your family as you step into this new chapter of your lives.

What should I be doing as a parent to create the best environment for my teen or young adult as they begin moving through this process? What should I say to my teen to let them know they are loved and blessed by God in these moments, and how do I keep them encouraged throughout this process? What resources do organizations like Line.org offer and how can they help me find local resources that will help my teen or young adult?

Hi parents, if you feel like your teen or young adult prodigal will never change, you are not alone! Many of us have seen our teens and young adults make many self-destructive choices or get caught up in the darkness of this world, and we are going to battle this war over our children together. In today's episode, we will preface upcoming episodes where you will find hope, encouragement, and resources so that you as a parent of a prodigal will feel more prepared and armed with the knowledge and authority to help your struggling teen or young adult find victory too!   "… it's time to separate the behavior from the child. The angels of darkness, also known as demons, are our true enemy, not our children. It's hard to keep this in the forefront of our minds as our children's eyes turn cold and we feel as though they are disconnected from the love." - Laine Lawson Craft.   What to look forward to: Introducing Warfare Parenting podcast (0:18) Being in the war zone with our children (1:22) What to expect from the upcoming Warfare Parenting episodes (4:42)   Do you feel like you are in a battle with your teen?

The Warfare Parenting podcast welcomes you into real-life conversations with parents, counselors, pastors, doctors, and testimonies from healed prodigals. In the premier series of the Warfare Parenting podcast, we will talk about many of the challenges that face our teens and young adults and lure them into some serious struggles. We will talk about addictions, suicidal thoughts, unexpected pregnancies, anorexia, and more. And while we're going to talk about all the general parts of these topics, we will also share powerful real-life stories of the teen or young adult or the parent who fought this spiritual battle and won the war over the devil's plans.
