The world our children are growing up in is far different than when we were young. We know this to be true when we read the news or check social media.

Parents today are dealing with situations they never dreamed they’d be facing with their kids. Many of them are blindsided by difficult questions and don’t know how to respond to the struggles their child is going through.

From the very detailed and graphic sexual education their teachers are teaching them, to being told that their gender can change or is fluid, to the growing prevalence of sexting among teens and tweens and the troubling frequency of bullying among youth in general, children are unsure of how their faith fits into the world around them.

Children, tweens and teens are dealing with new social norms that have rapidly changed within the last few generations. And kids today are being faced with big questions at a young age – questions their parents are often uncertain of how to answer.

Children need guidance from their parents, especially on issues that are embarrassing, uncomfortable or awkward. But when they don’t receive guidance – or feel they can’t ask for it – they start to look elsewhere, and often find peers, teachers or media with advice that is quite different from God’s truth.

Will you give today so your donation goes twice as far to equip parents to not only understand these issues, but also know how to help their children navigate them while maintaining their Christian faith?
