We Celebrate Our Parents

We only have a couple hours a week with your student to connect, affirm, and influence them toward a rich personal life with Jesus. You do life with them 24/7. As a parent of a preteen/teenager, breaking new ground in uncharted territory is your daily life. Right?

We are here to support you, pray for you, and back you up! This is what we call “community” and it is an honor to be there for you.

A LOOK INTO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL YEARS:
(Excerpts taken from The Phase Project, parentcue.org & leadsmall.org)

Sixth Graders…the phase when there’s never enough pizza, too many hormones, and a dramatic kid who needs someone to prove “Who Cares?” Middle school is a crisis. No longer a child, sixth graders arrive in a new social context just in time for their bodies to outgrow their coordination, for hormones to kick in and for their brains to become a tangle of new synapses. Every Sixth grader wants to know, “Who do I like?”
YOUR ROLE IS TO AFFIRM THEIR PERSONAL JOURNEY

Seventh Graders…the phase when nothing you do is cool, what they feel right now matter most, and one suddenly social kid wants to know, “Who’s going?” Seventh graders are in a season of personal discovery. Interests and abilities change. Not everyone makes the team. Long accepted values can come into question. On top of all that, this phase is a time of heightened self-awareness. Every Seventh grader wants to know, “Who am I?”
YOUR ROLE IS TO AFFIRM THEIR PERSONAL JOURNEY

Eighth Graders…the phase when it’s cool to have choices, it’s not cool to answer questions, and one smart kid will remind you, “Yeah…I know.” Eighth graders have an emerging sense of control. They are increasingly able to self-regulate their actions, emotions, and activities. But this creates a new tension for teenagers to resolve. Every eighth grader wants to know, “Who do I want to be?”
