Ep 13 | Mark Gregston on: Parenting Why are so many teens and college students leaving the faith? Why do kids who grow up in Christian homes end up rejecting those beliefs as adults? We speak with Mark Gregston, author of the book “Raising Teens in a Contrary Culture” and Founder and Executive Director of Heartlight, a residential counseling center for struggling teens. We dig into how parenting in today’s culture has never been harder. We also talk about why addressing the parent’s behavior is just as critical, if not more important, than the behavior of our children.
