If you’re locked in a battle with your stepparent, you might feel like I’m preaching to the choir. You likely already know, all too well, that relationships with stepparents are difficult to navigate. You need to know what to do about it.
There are a lot of hurt kids who struggle to pick up the pieces of their parents’ divorce, especially after their parents have moved on to another marriage. If that’s where you are, I want to offer you hope.
Believing the lie that because you submit your parents should always make the right decisions can lead to a heap of heartache. Expecting them to never falter, never fail, never lose their cool, never make a decision on impulse, or never choose poorly isn’t realistic.
Scripture doesn’t make exceptions for teens. You don’t get a separate
set of rules just because your hormones are raging. And especially when
it comes to the way you relate to your parents, there is no biblical free pass for rebellion.
