This REAL TALK: PARENT GUIDE is designed to help facilitate a family conversation around the pressure that teenagers and kids feel to perform in every area of life. Parents can help their teen or kid identify ways to reduce the pressure and step into a more sustainable pace of life and a healthier view of themselves.


  • Download the REAL TALK: PARENT GUIDE and post it on your website.
  • Email parents a copy of the resource or a link to it and encourage them to take time as a family to have the conversation.
  • Print copies of the REAL TALK: PARENT GUIDE for parents to grab at church.

This month we encourage you, as a ministry leader, to think about how you navigate the pressure you feel to perform. We all want to be the best ministry leaders we can be, but how clear are we about what success looks like and how much of our identity is wrapped up in what we do, not who God says we are? This month’s coaching video provides you with some practical wisdom and encouragement about setting appropriate boundaries and resting in your identity first and foremost as a child of God.
