Parents who are struggling with one or more adolescents are usually desperate for help. This is a great opportunity for us as biblical counselors to share God’s wisdom, talk about the authority and sufficiency of scripture, and to model humility and patience as we walk alongside a very real problem today. With real life examples, some humor and a finger on the text Garrett Higbee addresses how to help parents and their teens. There is no pain like family pain, but there is no hope like Christ for hurting families!
This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana.
People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.

Dr. Garrett Higbee was trained as a clinical psychologist with a specialty in marriage and family counseling, but had a radical conversion in 1992 which led him to trust in Christ and His Word for all things related to life and counseling. He has over twenty years of experience using the Scriptures to counsel couples, families, and youth and is dedicated to training those who lead and counsel others in Biblical soul care. Garrett is a frequent conference speaker and a contributing author for several biblical counseling books. Additionally, he has created several Biblical Soul Care training resources focused on small group discipleship.
