How Can Parents Encourage Kids to Own Their Faith as They Grow Up?

“Parental powerlessness is difficult to face. Sometimes we minimize and excuse it but we cannot just accept it as inevitable or chalk it up to “teenage attitudes” or “kids these days.” Though our role and influence do change as our children grow, we still need to be a voice in their lives.

video of Julie Lowe for CCEF

"Bullying has been a longstanding issue among kids. It has become more prevalent and the conversation to stop bully has taken a center stage among schools. As parents, when should we have the conversation? The time is now. This video gives an insight of conversation starter points to have with your children. To stand up for what is right and good. It gives you, the parent, the chance to teach your child on how to respond rightly to the conflict and to be peacemakers." - ORBC Preschool Minister, Teresa Prendergast
