It's a good thing when your teen is asking you questions! Now here's how to respond in the moment.

It’s a scenario that’s almost bound to happen at some point. Your teen is asking sensitive and tough questions about their faith. How should you, the parent, respond?

We had the chance to talk about this situation with Mari Pablo, a Catholic speaker and writer who has worked in youth ministry for over 15 years, including being a youth minister in New Orleans and a high school theology teacher in Miami. She’s also one of the new presenters in the updated course from Ascension, Chosen: Your Journey to Confirmation.
