We all want parents to stop grounding their kids from our church. I ve seen it for years, parents treating kids church attendance like the privilege of riding a bicycle or playing baseball. It s more important than that, but have we really sold parents on the value of all that you do? Seriously ask yourself, are your areas really punishment? Are you taking the time to confront this misperception in the minds of parents?
We can communicate the value of what we do by helping parents find creative solutions to discipline, and learning to step out with courage and respect to confront the problem head on.
It s on me. It s on you.
