How to help your teenagers through real life struggles

As Christian parents, our aspirations extend beyond earthly successes: we yearn for our children to embrace faith, find purpose, and navigate life’s challenges with resilience and grace. Yet, amidst the beauty of this journey, there are daunting shadows, often unspoken battles that our teens face silently, battling against the currents of depression, anxiety, panic attacks and tragically, even thoughts of suicide. This blog post is aimed at equipping you on how to help your teenagers through real-life struggles.

As parents, we cannot be oblivion to what is going on with our teenagers and the influences that surround them out there in the world who may or may not have heard about God. So you can imagine my joy when I received the link to review the movie “What Rhymes with Reason”. This movie is beyond amazing and it is a breath of fresh air to be able to watch this faith-based movie with my teenagers.


Tragedy ignites a group of teens on a quest to find a legendary landmark hidden in the wilderness. Together, they navigate the adventure while confronting the darkness within them in an attempt to find hope.

After the movie, my teen daughters and I had a long length of conversation about these struggles and how they can get help for themselves or their friends. They also shared what they learnt from the movie:

” We should always talk to you or a trusted adult when we think something is wrong.”

“We should always open up to God about our struggles.”

“Savor the moment you have with your loved ones”.

“Put God first in all your adventures”

“When you are thinking of hurting yourself, call on God first, talk to your parents or call the 988 suicide line for help”
