Youth Parenting Resources

Let's face it.  Parenting a pre-teen and/or teenager is one wild ride.  Why aren't they the same as they were in elementary school?  We need all the help we can get to plant seeds of discipleship and hope to raise our children up to be loving, mature Christian adults.  We look to God, and to fellow parents who have already gone, or are going through it with us!  Please take advantage of the helps offered here on this page.  If you come across any Christian Parenting information, feel free to share!  Thanks and blessings on your Teen Parenting!  It's worth the ride!

Please join us for our Youth Parenting Support Group!  We meet to get advice and support from each other, pray, and listen to special speakers while enjoying Christian parent fellowship!  Events listed on church calendar and the Parentlink Youth newsletter each month!

To prepare yourself for your child going through 7-8 grade Confirmation classes, we encourage you to take the adult Living Discipleship course yourself!  Usually offered twice each year with the first one starting in September.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6

 

Model good Christian qualities to your kids, like forgiveness and joy!  You are their main example to follow!

Always make them know and feel that they are loved and valued in your eyes, and more importantly, in God's eyes!

Help and encourage them to explore their spiritual gifts and serve the Lord as a family!  Volunteer for charities and in Church ministries!  Teach your child stewardship!

 

The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.  Proverbs 20:7
