Inside the Brain of the Modern Parent

Breakout by Leneita Fix | Let’s face it: we can’t minister to teens without engaging their parents in some way. No matter how much time they might spend with us, at some point they all go home. The modern-day parent can be hard to understand, and the family dynamic has changed drastically in the last decade with divorced parents, cohabiting parents, same-sex relationships and grandparents raising grandchildren. Do you struggle with how to really walk alongside these parents and support their family situations? Do you ever wonder why your students are so over-involved and what parents are thinking as they drive their children to do more? This seminar will explore who the modern parent is, how and why parents think the way they do, and how to genuinely partner with them.
