Are you a parent of teenagers? Teenage GIRLS? I’m a Dad to three girls, one still a teenager. Why is there always so much drama with teenage girls? You know the drama I’m talking about—girls in everybody else’s business, like your daughter’s friend having boy trouble, or a few friends are ignoring the other. While it seems trivial to us, it isn’t for them. How do I handle it? Sometimes not very well. But what I should do is listen and NOT try to fix everything. But it’s also important to point them to Scripture. Galatians 5:15 says, “if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another” (ESV). Loving one another is better.
