It is what it is, but it is not what it seems to be.
During this past season, perhaps some of you have felt mental and emotional uncertainty and unrest. It seems that everything that could be shaken was shaking, where noise, angry noise, appears to be drowning out laughter and love.
I am describing what I felt from an adult perspective, someone who has known challenge and loss and fear, and somehow with the help of faith and time and supportive friends, I recovered, I healed. I was blessed.
But what about the children, the next generations? How do we love them through this season of storms to the other side of through? How do we listen beyond their words and hear their needs? Just because they can connect and share with the world instantly doesn’t mean they are doing it any better.
This week, Frankly Speaking with Tyra G presents a compilation of courageous conversations by teens about teens who live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They authentically discuss addiction, perfection, fear, race, phones, and teen life in general. They discover that the places they go to make themselves feel better don’t always make them get better. Finally, they talk heart to heart and spirit to spirit. They give sage advice to each other and their parents.
Take a listen and learn things.
