A Youth Worker's Field Guide To Parents
Understanding Parents of Teenagers
You've probably studied teenagers' needs, their culture, and even their ever-changing lingo in preparation to be the most dynamic youth worker your church has ever seen. But when was the last time you studied their parents?
What are their fears? What motivates their decisions? And why do some of them seem so hard to please?
Plenty has been written in recent years about the importance of engaging parents in youth ministry. But maybe the real challenge is to reconcile that idea with one of the most common youth ministry variables: the parents. A Youth Worker's Field Guide to Parents is for youth workers who struggle to communicate with and relate to the moms and dads of the teenagers they want to reach the most. Whether you're a veteran youth worker or just starting out, or a church leader who wants to embrace parents more effectively, this book provides tips for peacemaking, insights for better empathy, and the motivation you need to make these important relationships work.
