Being a middle schooler can be difficult these days. Being the parent of a middler schooler can drive you crazy! We know as parents many of you wonder what has happened to your child now that they are in middle. We know that connecting with your kids when they are teens can be a challenge and our student ministry wants to help you with that process of connecting. The relationship between you and your child can get better and we want to help.
We also know there are things that you really want to make sure your child “gets” before they head off to high school. The problem is, talking with your teen about important truths can feel awkward at times. Rather than waiting for your them to awkwardly approach you about difficult subjects, what if you were intentional about making it happen on the front end?
This year we are inviting you to block out time for a Rites of Passage Experience (ROPE) with your child. We believe this will help you build your relationship with your son or daughter and also provide you an opportunity to share with your child what you wish someone had shared with you. These experiences tackle difficult subjects in a practical way you can actually handle.
Please check out these rite of passage experiences, whether you will use them this year or next year. If you have any questions, please email me, Mike Sheley: firstname.lastname@example.org
