Q. Each school year brings issues I don’t always know how to address as a parent. What help should I expect from my local church?
A. You’re right; parenting in our rapidly shifting culture is a tough job! Somewhere along the line churches got labeled as irrelevant by many, and that is a shame. Throughout the Metroplex there are solid churches that want to partner with you as the parent in equipping your student to not only survive, but thrive, both in school and well into adulthood. Look for a church with an intentional spiritual development strategy that expresses a desire to partner with you as the parent, and with leaders who are well equipped to connect with and to invest in your kids. Praying an awesome school year ahead for you and your family!
