This is a bonus just for the youth leader—a quick tip and an illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this idea, have learned it through trial and error, or just need a quick reminder.




A common frustration adults have when they work with youth is that young people don’t act like adults. Imagine that! It would be helpful if adults would actually take an accurate stroll down memory lane when looking back at the maturity and behavior they had at that age. In reality, young people living right now are likely more mature than adults of today were as teens! But many adults can forget that. Even worse, however, are adults who are still trying to be teens—nobody appreciates that! Just be who you are, keep maturing on your own, and encourage both growth and understanding in your participants.
