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.




Adults who have already experienced something a young person may be experiencing for the very first time can sometimes play it down by saying something like, “That’s no big deal. I did that years ago.” Youth leaders need to view an accomplishment from a young person’s perspective—it’s a big deal! Celebrate it with them and treat it like it really is a first-time experience, because for that person, it is. It’s always easy for adults to draw on their experience, but let that go and celebrate the moment!
