Developing Meaningful and Influential Conversations with Your Kids
The single biggest missing element in discipleship today is the heartfelt conversations between parents and kids. As ministry leaders, you must equip parents to have heartfelt conversations. Parents of preschoolers and early elementary age have no problems talking to the curious tiny humans God gave them, but conversations can become strained as teenage years approach. This session will identify seven barriers in communication and provide a meaningful conversation formula that is not only easy but memorable. Parents cannot disciple kids without a relationship, and a relationship cannot occur without meaningful conversation.
