Stability(her)

How do you teach stability? We can offer stability, but as we are experiencing, that doesn’t mean it will be received. “Ann” stays out late, really late, and sleeps till long after noon; sometimes till evening. She doesn’t eat meals with us and she hasn’t turned in her job applications. Her friendships come and go on a daily basis.
How do we teach stability… lovingly? Do we have those tough love conversations, or do we continue to encourage her silently; modeling stability (as best we can)?

One thought on “Stability(her)

  1. My parents had a situation like this with my oldest sister. And it got to the point that they gave her one more shot and when she blew it they had to stand firm. She was 18 and drinking and coming home late and with us younger kids they didn't want that influence in the house so they asked her to leave. I remember it was so hard for them to do that. I read your other post that she chose to move out. All you can do is stand on the word of God and believe that she will come back to it someday!Blessings to you and this hard adventure you are going through.Kim
