Youth Leader Tip

This bonus is just for the youth leader—a quick tip and an illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this, or you may learn 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.




While some young people are completely oblivious to how they look, many place tremendous importance on how they look, even  if that look is sloppy  or a look you would  never  choose for yourself.  Exactly! As teens try out new identities, they need to pick something adults would never pick for themselves. You don’t have to like it, or even pretend you like it. Just acknowledge their look with something like, "This is the first time I’ve seen your new look!" or "It looks like you thought a lot about your outfit today," or "I could  never  get  away with that look, but  you sure know how to do it!" Don’t be too  surprised when  it changes next  week.

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.
