Parent Support

By now you know that the spiritual instruction you give to your youth each week is pivotal to their growth in Christ. However, the most powerful force shaping a teen's walk with God are their parents and guardians. Gather the parents of your students together once a quarter. Share with them any highlights or concerns you may have about their youth.

If you schedule the meeting for the beginning of the quarter, give them an overview of the upcoming quarter's lessons. Parents are powerful allies in the spiritual instruction that you hope to impart on Sabbath. They must encourage their teens to study and complete each day's selection. We need their help and support.
