Where does youth work happen? At school? At the clinic? In juvenile hall, or the emergency?
What about at home? Sometimes, someone needs to sit down with the parent and explain parenting to them. It sounds awkward, but parents don’t always know best.
I’m not saying I do, either. I don’t have kids, but I know you are having an emotional response firing your action because these kids are your offspring.
I think what we learned was how to go through and identify the community components and players, help them discovery their potential, and help them build their dreams.
