This research work posits that there are family values that are cherished in each culture especially in Nigeria. Unfortunately, exposure to modernization and the influence of globalization are eroding many supposed cherished family values. Some teenagers on the pretense of accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are also guilty of some acts of disrespect and disobedience to their parents. Many teenagers deliberately turned down their parents instructions even when it has nothing to do with what the Bible prohibits. This research therefore investigates into what led to Pentecostalism, who are teenagers and how teenagers, parents, teachers at school and church with other guardians and older adults can help create an atmosphere where teenagers can be better behaved and at the same time be acceptable to God, their parents and others in the larger society.
