PARENT CUE

We're teaching this:

Have you ever had a moment where you knew you needed to step up? Maybe you always sat on the bench during the basketball game, and your coach finally called you in to play. Or maybe you got selected to take a really advanced course in school. Or took a really important and high paying summer job. No matter the situation, you knew that you had two choices: either step up to the opportunity or step

back and miss it altogether. And while these challenges aren’t just limited to high school, we do have the chance to start becoming a step up kind of person right now. This was exactly where a man named Joshua found himself in the Old Testament. Joshua was just a normal guy facing some really challenging circumstances. Through his story, we can learn to step up and reach the potential God has for us the process.

Try this:

Most of the time, the difference between doing something average and doing something great is having the courage to try. And one way to build that courage is to give students experiences over time that let them know you trust them and believe in them. Reggie Joiner says it this way,

“A kid will never believe he or she is significant until you give them something significant to do.”

This week, try trusting your kid with something significant in your home. Maybe at your house that means...

  • Asking them to make dinner.

  • Giving them a budget and trusting them to buy

    groceries for the week.

  • Relying on them to drive a sibling to ballet.

  • Asking for their advice on the family budget or

    vacation plans.

  • Trusting them to take the family pet to the vet for

    a checkup.

    Obviously, it isn’t a good idea to put your child in a situation that is dangerous or that he or she isn’t ready for. But it is okay to trust them with something new that is just outside their comfort zone. In doing so, you’ll let them know that you believe in them and give them just a little more confidence for the next challenge they’ll face.
