Leader Guide for your leader team (and this week parents). Just send them this podcast, send them the leader guide and have discussion with them!
We have Carey Nieuwhof here talking about everything parenting. Carey talks about the natural tendency for junior highers to withdraw from their parents. He gives some tips on how to be a present parent during that time and encourages parents to put the relationship with their kids before their work. Carey ends with giving practical tips on how leaders and youth workers can partner with parents. Some tremendous insight from Carey you will no want to miss!
