Raising Responsible Adults: Ken Wilgus on effective parenting of teens

This episode is an educational and fun dialogue with Dr. Ken Wilgus, the author of Feeding The Mouth That Bites You, a practical guide for parents of adolescents targeted at helping them facilitate their teenager’s autonomy, responsibility, self-efficacy and independence. We touch on many tough subjects: behavior issues, academic performance, helicopter parenting, failure to launch, device culture, teen sexuality, faith and morality, substance and porn use.  Dr. Wilgus is a sought-after speaker and regularly teaches on a wide range of topics relating to parenting, marriage, family and faith.  He conducts training workshops for educators and has been a consultant with several area school districts as well as private schools. He is also co-founder of RingLeaders, a men’s ministry focused on strengthening the role of husbands in Christian marriage.
