JONATHAN'S BLOG: Andy Stanley on Parenting Middle Schoolers
I love Andy Stanley, and since my passion is to provide parents with good parenting tools... this video is a gold mine!

The video is an interview with Andy Stanley about parenting middle schoolers-- a great free piece to show as a parent training tool.

I love his answers on so many of these topics. Sound familiar?

  • Don't have THE TALK... begin a conversation (more than just the talk).

  • Don't let your kids keep their phones in their rooms at night. (Keeping social media safe)

  • Start with more strict rules with the goal of no rules their senior year of high school.

  • Don't freak out.

  • Delay punishment, giving yourself time to think.


So much good parenting advice in this video!

Here's the video- a great tool to show to parents and then discuss with the questions I've provided below:
