End of the Summer: Parent Check-In

End of the Summer: Parent Check-In

As summer comes to a close, school hangs in the balance across the globe due to a global pandemic. Will they start on time or delay? Will they meet online or in-person? Uncertainty is the uncomfortable guest that never seems to leave. So how are the children? The teenagers? Nick Mobley, one of M2P’s authors, created an “End of the Summer: Parent Check-In” that helps parents discern how their kids are doing.

How It Works

If you’re a parent…

  • Click Summer Check-in: Parents Kids to download.
  • Let your kids know the family will have a brief meeting to talk about the new school year.
  • Prepare any other items or information your kids need (school supplies suggestions, possible start dates, needs for homework areas, etc.).
  • Decide on a verse that will inspire your kids with courage (Psalm 37:23 is a good example.).
  • Print the sheets and bring pencils or pens.
  • During family time, ask them to look over the sheets and give the option to write their answers. 
  • Go around and have each family member share their answer. Parents, too! Kids may be surprised at your answers!

If you’re a leader…

  • Click Summer Check-in: Parents Kids to download.
  • Email or print the sheets to give to parents.
  • If you email, copy/paste the instructions above to parents in an email.


Nick has served in student ministry for 20 years and currently serves as Family Pastor at Northside Baptist in Middle TN.
