Help, My Preteen Is Almost a Teenager!

parents of preteensI recently sat down with Michael Bayne of to record an interview for parents of preteens. If you haven’t yet visited, you should. Their mission is to partner with churches – helping them walk alongside of the parents in their children’s & youth ministries. These guys rock!

The interview is a resource that you can share with the parents in your preteen ministry. Simply email them the link to this page so they can listen at their convenience. (P.S. – This interview is also a sneak peak into some of the awesome resources subscribers get).

In the interview, we talk about what parents of preteens should be thinking about. We talk about the changes preteens are undergoing, some ideas to consider when it comes to social media, and so much more!

As mentioned in the interview, I’m the parent of two preteen boys – Ethan (12 years old) & Joey (10 years old). In fact, that’s a picture of both of them at Monster Jam last weekend. Fun! I’ve also worked with preteens in the context of a local church for about 15 years. I’m no expert, but I do have a lot of experience to draw from when it comes to preteens.
