What is POP?
POP stands for Parent OPportunity and is our way of partnering with and resourcing parents to intentionally raise their child in the faith. Our goal is to is help you grow with your kids.
What does this look like? We’re glad you asked! Here are some of the ways we want to partner with you:
At PBC we offer seminars and workshops that inform and give parents tools to grow with their kids. We’ll also let you know of any parent education opportunities in the local community.
We get it, sometimes it can be hard to talk to your kids and even harder when you don’t know where to start. We’ll help by sending you questions that will spark meaningful dialogue throughout the year.
As parents, we only have 936 weeks with our kids before they leave home. This means we need to make the most of the time we do have with them. We’ll help by equipping you to celebrate milestones and transitions along the way.
Tips for having great conversations with your teen:
Choose the right location. Often, we sabotage a conversation before it starts by selecting a location that is hectic, distracting, or full of interruptions. Take advantage of car and meal time!
Listen with your heart. Instead of planning what we’re going to say next or in response, pay full attention to what your teen is communicating in words, tone and body language.
Repeat what they said. This may sound strange, but repeating what they’ve said demonstrates appreciation, support, and attention.
Ask follow-up questions. People generally love to talk about themselves – regardless of age. One of the best ways to fan the flame of conversation is to ask them to tell you more. Much of the time, a follow-up question can begin with something like, “Tell me more about…” or “Why do you think that is?”
