Parent Partnership (part 1)

Parents are the strongest, most important influence in a child’s spiritual journey and we are honored to be invited into that story.

The reality remains, however, that a parent’s voice, real-life personal example and spiritual journey has the greatest opportunity to influence a child's growth in both knowledge and passion.

Unfortunately, as our children mature, particularly as they cross the threshold into tween/teen years, the power of parent influence begins to wane. As our kids get busy, often that time we would normally spend with our child is gobbled up, and it evaporates before we know it.

Parents: You have an opportunity to leverage their influence by inviting people who are passionate about students into the chaos.

Imagine if you had a team of adults around your child, championing their heart, spirit and soul in a way that pointed them toward the holistic unique purpose laid out for them by their Creator.

Imagine if you had a team of adults around you, cheering along the sidelines of your parenting journey, arming you with support, resources, listening ears and reassuring voices.

This is parent partnership at Ignition.

We'll start here in a first installment of resources for parents (all book covers are clickable links).
