What Easy, Practical Things Can I Do to Connect With Parents?

As a LifeKids leader, you’ve probably heard someone say we partner with parents. Why do we do it? Because our small group of kids is only with us for one hour of the week—parents are with their kids a whole lot more than that!

What things do we do to partner with parents and support them? Watch this video and read below to get some practical, concrete steps to make it easy!

Talk through these discussion questions with your fellow leaders and LifeKids team.

  1. What does “partner with parents” mean to you?
  2. What are some ways you already partner with parents well?
  3. Which suggestions from the video do you think would be easy for you start doing?
  4. What are some ways you can partner with parents that aren’t listed in the video?

A special thank you to Orange and the reThink Group for their ideas and research on their “lead small” philosophy referenced in this guide.
