Youth leader tip for the week

This bonus is just for you as the youth leader — a quick
tip and an illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this, or you may have learned it through trial and error, or maybe you just need a reminder of
something you already know. Here’s a way to get it with a quick infusion.



Those who have a little bit of exposure to young people and the current culture aren’t as likely to be shocked or reactionary when they see or hear about young people. Adults ten36d to have selective memory about their own teen years. Young people might simply be trying to push your buttons to see if you
still care about them when they do something or look a certain way intended to shock. You can acknowledge their look or action, but will you still put your arms around them? Don’t confuse loving them with condoning their looks or actions.

This week’s resources also include two lesson plans and a discussion starter video which offer different ways of looking at the topic. Each lesson plan includes opening activities, scripture passages, discussion questions, and real-life applications.
