Raising kids should be one of the most rewarding parts of our lives as a parent. However, the world we live in seems to move faster than the speed and capacity of most us. It’s abundantly clear that there are more things happening in the lives of our kids than we, the parents, can keep up with. For that reason, we have to raise kids that can take care of themselves, make the right choices, and extend love and kindness to others when we’re not around.
Below you’ll find several links and resources to help you on your parenting journey.
Parenting Community: Online Midweek Gathering
Join other parents every Tuesday at 8pm for an online midweek gathering.
Why? Because raising our kids in this world is HARD and we all need help!
Every week we will provide a “come-as-you-can” opportunity to connect with other parents and discuss relevant parenting topics so that you never have to parent alone. This online gathering is for parents with kids of all ages, so we are going to discuss a wide range subjects like:
- How do I talk to my kids about the “tough stuff”?
- What resources are their for helping set boundaries and raise my kids so they can learn to think for themselves?
- What works for establishing faith rhythms in the home?
- How do I have a faith while trying to encourage theirs?
The Parent Cue website is from the partner ministry we get our Sunday morning children’s ministry curriculum from. There’s a blog that’s updated regularly, plenty of parenting resources, and the Parent Cue App, which syncs with our Sunday lessons. Download the Parent Cue App, and when prompted, search for and select Shoal Creek Community Church.
The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers. At a time when an already confusing youth culture is changing quickly, CPYU helps parents, youth workers, educators, and others understand teenagers and their culture so that they will be better equipped to help children and teens navigate the challenging world of adolescence.
