Make it Easy to Carry

We all want parents to teach their kids at home, what we ve worked so hard to teach them on the weekends.   This has begun to pick up steam across a lot of our children s ministries, and for good reason.   If parents can get connected to what their kids are learning, we increase our effectiveness exponentially.   But, as leaders are we giving parents places to connect with what their kids learn?   Have you set the bar so impossibly high that parents never even try?   Is involvement with their kids rewarded in any way?   There are a plethora of ideas out there to get information into the hands of parents, but are we using it right?

We can communicate this important value by encouraging, exhorting, and praying with parents to see and fulfill their own role as a parent at home.  

It s on me.   It s on you.
