The Journey: Divorce Through the Eyes of a Teen
Being a teen is hard enough…
Being a teen whose family is experiencing divorce is even harder.
Getting through life can be difficult at all ages, but dealing with your parents’ divorce as a teen is particularly difficult. Teens have a much harder time both mentally and emotionally with stress and loss. Why is this?
- Teens’ brains are still developing. The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that holds everything together with logic and reason. This isn’t fully developed until a person reaches their mid-twenties.
- Teens are going through hormonal changes. This creates not only minor changes in mood but huge mood swings, as well.
- Teens are experiencing many different feelings and changes for the first time, and they feel them in a more heightened way.
Teens mainly spend their days surrounded by more teens who are just as emotionally unbalanced as they are.
The Journey: Divorce Through the Eyes of a Teen is a small group curriculum designed to lead teens through the journey of recovery from the tragedy of divorce. This curriculum is filled with practical activities and hands-on tools to empower teens to make healthy choices, and the class includes an interactive Student Workbook designed to specifically apply to their own unique family circumstances.
Divorce can have a major impact on families, but it doesn’t have to destroy them. The Journey: offers hope and healing to teens and their families who are going through this difficult and often challenging time. Give your teens the tools they need to fulfill their God-given destiny.
