In Mentoring Your Students’ Parents, we made the case for Bible class teachers of children and teens providing some mentoring support for the parents of their students. Christian parenting is hard if you had great Christian parents, it can be unbelievably difficult if you didn’t. Offering or suggesting resources to all of your parents can be a less threatening way to begin mentoring them. Those who are interested in learning even more can then easily approach you fro more mentoring help.
There are so many ways you can provide mentoring help. Not all of them require the parents of your students reading books. Not every one wants to put that kind of time into reading and in some environments your parents may be functionally illiterate and unable to process books written on a higher reading level.
So what are some of our favorite parenting resources?
