Your Child’s Phase
THE PHASE WHEN IT’S COOL TO HAVE CHOICES, IT’S NOT COOL TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, AND ONE SMART KID WILL REMIND YOU, “YEAH… I KNOW.”
Eighth graders have an emerging sense of control.
They are increasingly able to self-regulate their actions, emotions, and activities. But this creates a new tension for teenagers to resolve.
Every eighth grader wants to know, “Who do I want to be?” So, your role is to AFFIRM their journey.
There are 260 weeks until graduation. DON’T MISS IT.
During your child’s school year, Victory Family Church will go in-depth in February on a biblical principle during services. This isn’t the only time they will learn about this topic. We are just emphasizing the principle during this period. The subject is determined based on their age, stage of development, and what’s culturally and socially relevant.
The Power of the Word
Your eighth-grade student will learn about a daily devotional life with their Bible and the benefits of getting into the word. 2 Timothy 3:16 says all scripture is God-breathed and probably for teaching, proof, correction, and training for truth in righteousness. In Psalms 119:105, your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. God desires you to grab hold of these truths and recognize that every answer they need is in their Bible.
Parent/student engagements are designed to help connect and strengthen the family unit by providing intentional conversations that your student needs in this season of life. In the month of September, we want to help you stay engaged in your student’s spiritual walk with the Lord by providing you the tools to do a devotional with your child.
Daily Devotional Life
Now more than ever is so important to model your devotional life because your eighth-grade student will or should be following suit. We have a way to track your devotional time and a Bible plan to help you walk through the Bible with your student.
