Alien Youth Parent Resources


This month, I want to encourage you to begin something new in your relationship with your teenager. Find a hobby that you can share with your teen. Ask your teenager their opinion on this! What do they like, what do you like, what are their interests, and what are yours? Write them all down and then find a common thread that you can work with.

God has given you a very valuable gift and it is called time. Psalms 31:15 says, "My times are in Your hand..." I know that time is hard to come by with all of the commitments that you have. Think of how much more valuable your time would be if you took it our of your hands and placed it in God's by creating time that you could share with your teenager.

Watch this video that will help you get started...


Each Rite of Passage provides two videos for you as a parent to watch. The first video is the "why" video. It explains why you should walk through the Rite of Passage. The other video is the "how to" video providing you with a step-by-step guide in how to set up these Rites of Passage. Here's a description of the associated documents:

  • The Kickstarter is the biblical background for each Rite of Passage
  • The Parent Guide is an extension of the "how to" video
  • The Developmental Guide helps you know what's going on physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually with your teenager
