How You Can Train Parents and Kids

As a children’s leader, here are 3 great ways YOU can train both parents and kids in your ministry!

Host an FAQ Night for Parents
(That’s Frequently Asked Questions.) Have parents submit questions in advance, and ask your friendly techie (or teenager) to spend an evening answering them. Based on the questions, an informative presentation could be easily compiled, with demonstrations and examples.

Teach Internet Safety in Your Ministry
Reinforce at church what parents are trying to teach their kids at home. We’ve made it easy for you to teach Internet safety during any HighPoint kit with a FREE Hub Time lesson that focuses on making good choices on the Internet. Download it here! Use it with any HighPoint kit--we suggest kits like Everyday Choices, Responsibility, or Truth & Consequences. Don't forget to download the parent letter as well, so parents know what you have been disussing and what they need to discuss at home!

Another great tool to try is NetSmartz®. Age-appropriate, kid-friendly presentations teach about possible dangers while acknowledging the Internet’s usefulness and fun. Visit http://www.netsmartz.org/.

NetConnect: Start a Small Group for Parents About the Internet
It’s a great way to connect parents struggling with similar questions. Use a book such as Internet Protect Your Kids to equip parents.

Do you teach Internet safety in your ministry already? What methods do you use? What works? What doesn't?
