Elementary parent resources


"Whether or not your child gets great grades or struggles academically we all feel the strain of helping our child succeed academically. So how do we do that well as parents?

Every child learn differently and at different paces. We often find ourselves caught in the comparison game. Make sure you know your child's strengths and that you've communicated those to your child. God created us all with strengths and weaknesses. Articulating that to your child can be tough-'Hey buddy, you're just not good at that.' However, helping our child to this realization will help them NOT feel like a failure if they happen to receive a failing grade.

Check out our video lesson this month for a little parenting coaching on how to help your child do well in school."

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 child
