What can parents do when they fear the freedom of their children? - Blessed Fr. Epiphanios Theodoropoulos of Athens, Greece (+1989)


HAVE FAITH - ORTHODOXY


What can parents do when 

they fear the freedom of their children?

Blessed Fr. Epiphanios Theodoropoulos of Athens, Greece (+1989):

Speak more to God about your children than to your children about God…. The soul of the teenager is in a state of an explosion of freedom. For this reason he has a hard time accepting various counsels. So, rather than counseling him continuously and re­proaching him now and again, leave the situation to Christ, to the Holy Virgin Mary the Mother of God and to the Saints, asking them to bring him to reason.
