I have a teenage girl in our church (16 yrs old) that has been raised in a christian home her entire life. She lives with her mom and step-dad. She has always been polite and respectful, until recently. Het attitude has really soured. I'm not sure what is causing this, but it is very uncharacteristic of her. She has shown disrespect towards her parents, myself, and anyone else in authority. She has told some of the youth that she is wanting to have sex with a boy that she knows. She doesn't want to come to church anymore, doesn't want to read her Bible nor hear any preaching tapes. She has repeatedly lied to her parents, been deceitful (calling boys on her cell phone, w/o her parents permission, then trying to cover it up). And the list goes on and on. Her parents are about to have a melt down, not sure what to do next. I need some Biblical counsel as to what to do. They're coming in for counseling later this week. Can someone reccommend a book I could read about dealing with rebellious teens? Anything will help. I personally believe that what is the cause is her relationship b/w her step-dad. He never hugs her, affirms his love towards her, takes her out on "dates". He basically has nothing to do with her and so I think she is looking for love elsewhere. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joe PREACH THE WORD!
