Christian Values Can Help Troubled Girls Solve Their Own Problems
By Curtis Reed
Equipping our teens with character is a good way to help them learn to solve their own problems. Christian values influence behavior and action. They also have the capacity to inspire and encourage. There are several fundamental values which are particularly important to emulate and can show troubled girls how to resolve their own issues.

Showing humility and saying “I’m sorry” to people that we don’t get along with will make our wrongs right. Forgiveness is key in learning to be considerate and humble. Young people can show forgiveness by being willing to “give in” to keep the peace.
Studies show that practicing thankfulness could be the key to being a happy, well-adjusted child. Grateful teens are also more likely to be happy, hopeful and well-behaved at school. In fact, that may be exactly what our society needs to raise a generation that is ready to make a positive difference in the world.
Teenagers should be encouraged to set firm boundaries and know how to handle temptations before they attend a party or go out with friends. They need to understand the consequences of premarital sex and alcohol/drug use. Things like modesty would come into play here. By telling your daughter, as she walks out the door, “I believe you will make wise choices tonight.” will help her to know that she is being held accountable.
God’s unconditional love for us is not based on our behavior. Offer forgiveness instead of a cold shoulder. By forgiving others, we let ourselves heal from the pain of anger.
Most teens come off as self-centered brats, worrying mostly about themselves and how they look. But, it is possible for them to show compassion. They learn to let go of judgement. In fact, when given the opportunity to practice a little selflessness, it’s surprising how well they respond to a friend in need.
Youth who are challenged to see beyond themselves by serving others, can forget their troubles, find meaning in life and put the focus on doing good.
