Another thing I was wondering was whether the teens whined too much and parents caved in and didn’t send them to youth nights like they did First Communion classes??
I always took my kids, regardless of their whining, but have recently found out that one of them skipped and went down town and then returned when I came to pick him up.
That’s frustrating. On one hand, they need to develop their own faith or it won’t last. On the other hand, it’s your job to guide them towards that personal relationship.
