Let’s take an example of adjusting our expecations of an urban youth who struggles with skipping school and smoking weed. 

Keisha has had a deeply ingrained habit of weed smoking and has been smoking every day since she was 13 years old.  Now 16, Keisha has received Christ’s forgiveness 6 months ago and is attending City Life Club and Bible study.  She has told you that she believes that her smoking weed is negatively affecting her life and she wishes she could stop.

She informs you that she didn’t smoke weed 2 days of the previous week and attended school both of those days.

What do you do?? What do you say??  In the next couple of weeks we will be unfolding both a negative reaction you could make to Keisha's behavior and a positive reaction.  I'd love to read your thoughts....
