<? echo $type; ?> What do Kids Wish for Their Parents?

Every month in YouLead, we provide you with email copy that you can use to inform, invest, encourage, and praise your volunteers and staff. Following is an example of the emails we write for your use and encourage you to send out on a weekly basis. Click here if you’d like to try out a free month of YouLead.

Did you know that sleeping, eating, drinking, working and watching TV takes up about 2/3 of the average American’s day?* Parents, of course, also spend time doing household chores, traveling, and taking care of kiddos.

Not surprisingly, some of the smallest slivers of time on parents’ daily to-do lists are personal care, socializing, relaxing, thinking, and faith-related activities.

So, what do you think kids today want most from their parents?

Another study tells us that the majority of children simply wish their parents were less tired and less stressed.**

This month, how can you prioritize not only more time with your family, but intentionally spend more time taking care of yourself, which benefits everyone?

Developed by Orange, YouLead is a simple curriculum designed to develop the leadership skills of yourself, your team and your volunteers. It centers on answering three basic questions: What can I do to continue learning as a leader? How can I be intentional about connecting with my volunteers consistently? What can we do to stay on the same page as a team? We do this by creating materials that can be digested in 20 easy minutes a week. Click here to learn more about a subscription to YouLead.

At Orange Leaders, we influence those who influence the next generation. We do that by creating resources and products that help leaders like you do ministry better.
