Young people today experience so much, so young, and the decisions they make today will often affect them for the rest of their lives. As parents, one of our most critical roles is to equip our kids to make the right decisions.
We've all been age 8, 11, 14, and 16, but we were never the age our kids are -- because we never faced many of the choices they face. How can we parent an MTV generation in the midst of a sexual revolution, drug and alcohol revolution, and ever-changing media revolution?
This seminar will help parents develop a plan for effective postmodern parenting:
- How to present positive, value-centered sex education.
- How to focus on the prevention of drug and alcohol use and abuse.
- How to get a handle on rapidly changing media and technology.
- How to create a family guide for radio, TV and movies.
- How to decide as a family about the type of music that is acceptable in your home.
With practical ideas and time for questions and answers, this session will give you the tools and the confidence you need to lead your kids through the difficult challenges they face as teens.
Who should attend this seminar:
- Youth pastors
- Youth workers
- Children's ministry workers
