Parents @ The Well

So we know that being a parent to a teenager can be...
crazy.
discouraging.
fun.
exciting.
scary.
messy.

Here at First Church, we believe that our ministry should be partnering with you, the parents, to create a team of cheerleaders for your kids to help them experience life to the fullest! So here are some fun resources and ideas we have for you.

 

It's just a phase.

As a parent of teenagers, you've gone through the ups and downs of growing up. You've survived the terrible two's, you've witnessed the shock of starting Kindergarten, you've had to experience the "It's Not Fair" phase of your fourth grader whose battle cry for justice was heard throughout the family. Through it all, people will say, "Oh, it's just a phase, it will pass."

What if we changed that mindset, and said; "It's just a phase, so don't miss it." Childhood goes by so fast. Lean into the phase your child is in, and learn how to leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future.  Check out our Phase Resources through ReThink Group!

Parent cue.

Sometimes, parenting can be a little tricky. The good news is, there is a whole network of parents in the same boat! Parent Cue is another great resource for families, to help navigate doing family better! Between their regular blog posts, weekly podcasts, and smartphone app, they've got you covered with great conversation starters, think tanks, and advice on pretty much every parenting subject you can think of.

Subscribe to the podcast, check out the blog, or find them on social media. This is a tremendous resource for all parents!
