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 idea, have learned it through trial and error, or maybe just need a reminder. Here it is in a quick infusion:




Those who has 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 tend 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 arm 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.
