3 Crucial Conversations Parents Should Have With Their Preteens

More Pointers for Preteen Parents

Volunteer-your child needs to see your faith have legs on it. Put legs on it

Connect-With adults that you want to pour into your child. With parents of other preteens. And with other adults. If you don’t connect and model building relationships, it’s tough to get your child to do so.

Talk-Over and over again. Let your child know that you want to have conversations with them. That you are interested in every area of their life. Let curiosity become your ally.

Pray-Never underestimate the power of prayer. Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the father pleading for us. Take advantage of the connection that you have with him. Ask him to move mountains for your child while at the same time whispering to them.

Parents, what are some of the most important conversations that you have had with your child? Which conversations are you the most nervous about?
