Child: I don’t know.
Looking for a creative way to partner with the parents at your church? Getting parents and small group leaders on the same page and creating opportunities to work together is so important for spiritual development of your kids. One of the biggest hindrances to the growth of your kids is the lack of a consistent feedback loop. Parent pick up and drop off is often crazy and when you have 10+ kids in your small group talking with each parent about their child is not really feasible. There is always email but often that requires you to sit down and draft a letter with information about each of your kids individually and takes quite a bit of time. So how can you give instant feedback that is informative and beneficial to parents.
