THIS MONTH'S TOPIC -HOW DO I TEACH MY CHILD TO BE RESPECTFUL?


"Respect and honor, honor and respect. These words are used interchangeably in the Bible. We're called to honor and respect EVERYONE, especially those who have authority over us. At the root of respect is treating others the way we want to be treated, that's right, the golden rule. It's not just a concept to talk about, it's actually in the Bible!


We want our children to be respectful towards us, towards their siblings, their friends, their teachers. Actually we expect them to be respectful towards EVERYONE. But how do we move from wanting a respectful child to actually having one? Check out this month's video to begin the conversation on instilling respect."

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
