Bible Passage: Matthew 10:13-16



TEAM PLAYER


Advocating for our child who has challenges as they struggle to fit in children’s ministry can sometimes be agonizing. There are many things to consider and today we want to help you develop some strategies.


Remember that you are part of the TEAM


The child is the priority


Think ahead


What is helpful for this setting?


Remember that your child is emerging and expect progress


Share good character traits as well as trigger/struggle points


Give ideas of what has helped in the past but be open to new strategies


Have an attitude of gratitude


Pray for your child, the leaders, and the other children regularly


Consider a small thank you gift


Always give grace

Having roller coaster emotions?


Getting frustrated easily?


Reading?


Math?


Testing?
