Help parents find better answers to their toughest questions about parenting their teenagers and young adults.

As kids grow up, parents need a new posture that helps their family grow together. Growing With is filled with tips to equip leaders to support parents and families as they:

  • accept the kid they have, not the kid they wish they had
  • develop empathy that nudges rather than judges
  • fight for their child, not against them
  • connect their children with a faith and church big enough to handle their doubts and struggles
  • dive into tough discussions about dating, career, and finances
  • … and more!
Here are four ways you can use Growing With in your ministry:

1. Start a discussion group for parents of teenagers and young adults in your church.
Growing With is filled with stories from Kara’s, Steven’s, and other parents’ experiences, introducing three strategies which parents can apply and leaders can encourage. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions which can be used for personal reflection or group discussion.

2. Give parents of graduates the gift of Growing With.

4. Use it to inspire and equip your ministry to parents and families.

Help parents find better answers to their toughest questions about parenting their teenagers and young adults.
