Kids Church Parent Cues
Theme for the month:
Offstage: Drop the Act
Integrity is choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do.
REMEMBER THIS “Anyone who lives without blame walks safely. But anyone who takes a crooked path will get caught.”
Proverbs 10:9, NIrV
Ideas for Home:
Morning Time Idea: Write a note to your child on their mirror or a sticky note on their door saying, “Be brave by being truthful with your whole life.” If they ask what you mean, talk to them about being true to who they are and not bending or changing to what their friends behaviors are like. For example, if you
see someone not being kind, stand up for what is right.
Drive Time Idea: While in the car, practice celebrating everyones differences. Ask questions about favorite food, favorite music, or
favorite movie. Talk about how great it is that we all like different things and be in the same family. We can be honest about the things we like!
Meal Time Idea: Q & A FOR KIDS: Do you think there’s
such thing as a little white lie? Why
or why not?
Q&A FOR PARENTS: How do you think
people describe you and your character?
How would you want them to describe you?
Bed Time Idea: When you don’t tell the truth, people
find out. And when they find
out, they might stop trusting you. Your
teachers might not give you as many
privileges. Your friends may not want to
hang out with you. Bottom line: it’s always
better to be truthful. Pray for each other,
that God will give you the courage to be
truthful with the people in your life.

Ideas for Home:
Morning Time Idea: Especially in the lives of teenagers, time is precious. Before you know it, your teen will be an adult, right before
your eyes. This week take your teenager out to breakfast or coffee, your treat. Either wake up early before school or
grab brunch together over the weekend. Spend quality one on one time with them this week getting to know them
more and more.
Meal Time Idea:
This week, invite a neighbor over for dinner, and maybe invite someone you don’t know as well to share a meal
with you and the family. If that’s not an option, try to make an extra dinner as a family then take it to your neighbor.
Take the time to invest and get to know your neighbor, hearing their story as well as sharing parts of yours. Together as a family, make it personal for those in your
Their Time Idea:
The next time your teen asks for advice, ask them questions first before sharing your thoughts. Seek to fully
understand the situation at hand and how your teen is feeling before you seek to be understood. Try listening to what they have to say before formulating a response. Not only will your teen feel loved and understood, but you can build trust with your teen.
Bed Time Idea:
Before your teen heads off to bed, ask them to share their story with you. How would they describe their life so
far? What are some highs and lows that have helped make them who they are today? Their story could be 5 minutes long or 1 hour. As they share, listen to them distraction free. If given the chance, share part of your story with your teen
