If statistics are any indicator, may Christian parents will face the heart-rending actions of a wayward child. This child could be living at home or an adult child. They could lead lives inconsistent with the biblicalĀ faith they profess or perhaps reject the Christian faith altogether.

What should a parent do? How should they respond? What should they avoid?

Those are questions that Shane Vander Hart discussed with Scott Owen with Crosswalk Ministries in Ames, IA whose ministry offers biblical counseling and conciliation.

Scott provides sound advice to parents facing these difficult circumstances.
