Dear Mom and Dad,
The youth ministry here at DCBC values you and we believe that God intended discipleship to be a part of parenthood (Genesis 1:28; Deuteronomy 6). You, as parents, are SO important in the lives of your teenagers and you are capable of influence WAY more than us. We, at DCBC, desire to come alongside you. The resources provided here serve to help you – to keep you updated on the way teenagers think/see the world. I have divided them (as best I can) into sections: sexual purity articles, body Image articles, dating/marriage articles, parenting articles, media safety articles, and tough Topics articles.
One website that I would refer you to almost 100% of the time is CPYU.org. It is the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding. It is well maintained and you can find countless articles on here – way beyond what we have on our website. So, please do consult CPYU.org, if you cannot find what you are looking for here.
Dear, dear parents, if you need to talk to somebody, please contact us. We may not have all the answers, but we are capable of listening and we are capable of praying and/or referring you to someone who may be better equipped to help you in your marriage or in your parenting. If you have any questions concerning the material or concerning your child’s development, please contact us. We are here for you and your teenagers. We are praying for you. We love you.
In Christ, your youth ministry staff
