Parent Hub Live #4- Building a team of support for your kids.Thanks for joining us today! As a recap, here are the five steps you can start TODAY to build a team of support for your kid(s): 1. INVESTIGATEWho are the people who are already influencers in your kid's life? Who would make a great teammate?2. INVITEWho needs to know that you (or your child!) considers him/her one of five key influences in your child or teenager's life? Who would make a great teammate and just needs to be asked?3. INVESTGot your teammates? Invest in them! Your kid needs champions. Love them well. Support them. And then, invest in your kid...together! Learn and grow together. Everyone wins when you all get better.4. INFLUENCEAs you maintain these relationships and make them a priority, you will be a force against all that works to overwhelm, undermine, and destroy your child's chance to know the God who has shown we were all worth dying for.5. REPEATPhases change, school years change, people move, your kids' interests change, people leave...you get the picture. Stay aware. And keep refreshing the team.
