Parent Resources

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with your teenager? (trick question) We know it can be very difficult to raise teens in our technology driven world. Below we've provided some resources we hope will help you.

 

Kids grow up fast. If we aren’t paying attention we can miss it. That’s why we support a project called “It’s Just a Phase”. We don’t want adults to miss the distinctive opportunities that are present at every phase of a kid’s life. Let this video remind you to;"Pay attention. Time is moving forward. So be present. Show up for the kids and teenagers in your home and community. They will not be children forever. What you do for them in the phase they’re in now can give them a better future."

Its just a phase....so don't miss it!

The Talks: A Parent's Guide to Critical Conversations about Sex, Dating, and Other Unmentionables

Every parent fears having “the talk.” But what many fail to realize is that one conversation isn’t enough. Your kids need so much more! The home must become a place where your family can talk comfortably and honestly about sex and relationships.

The Talks will help you to…

*Focus on 15 conversations that every family must have about sex and dating. *Lay the right foundation on critical issues with your younger children. *Develop a practical approach to opposite sex relationships for teens. *Find healing from your own past so you can help your kids make wise choices. If you remain passive on these issues, your kids will likely assimilate into a sexually-charged culture that is severely broken…and their eventual marriages will suffer. But wise parents will start having these conversations sooner, more often, and in more detail than most people have ever considered. The Talks will show you how.

Navigating a Hyper-Sexualized Culture

Today’s children and teens are bombarded with a distorted view of human sexuality.

Kids are counting on their parents to help them to navigate these critical developmental years. Depending on the ages of your kids, you might want to start by checking out the five developmental checklists they have created and can be found on the link. They represent a simple place to start coaching your kids.

 
 
 

CELL PHONE CONTRACT

 At the end of the day, our kids are good people who we love and trust (well most of the time). What we need to do is empower our teens to make good decisions with their technology-to help them understand that a cell phone, like all privileges, is a responsibility.
