3 TYPES OF SPIRITUAL CONVERSATIONS YOU CAN HAVE WITH YOUR TEENAGER
This month's video discusses how important it is to be willing to engage in spiritual conversations with your teen. We encourage you to take a few minutes to watch the Online Parenting Class video. It offers excellent information on three types of spiritual conversations you can have with your teenager.
A study by Barna researchers revealed that out of 2,409 teens between the ages of 13 to 18, 71 percent said that they would attend a worship service at a church, synagogue or temple to "understand better what I believe." Teenagers want to know about God. They want to understand their Bibles. They are at a critical stage in their spiritual development and trying to make sense of exactly what it means to believe. They are seeking to make their faith their own.
Parents, you have the awesome responsibility of talking with your teens about spiritual things, though it might not always be easy. We hope you enjoy this Online Parenting Class and benefit from the suggestions offered about engaging in spiritual coversations with your teens. Please check out this month's online parenting class:
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
