Elementary parent resources


"What is your definition of a perfect parent? A parent who know exactly the right way to raise a confident, responsible child who excels in school, is an amazing friend, loves Jesus, is kind and compassionate, and never argues? If this kind of parent exists, I'd sure like to meet him or her.

The reality is, there is no perfect parent. The video this month discusses how there is No Perfect Parent-only our perfect heavenly Father. And yet, God in His sovereignty has ordained you to be the mom or dad to your child. He has entrusted you with this task, and it was not by accident. The Bible says, "Those who have been given a trust must prove faithful," (1 Corinthians 4:2). God only asks us to be faithful in parenting, not perfect."

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
