What's in the bundle?
Parent's Guide bundle: We have published 4 guides written by experts, that we hope will help parents to understand some of the complex issues teens face, and think through some of the ways they can support their children if they are struggling with any of these issues. The four topics are: self-harm, eating disorders, talking about sex, and young people and porn. The booklets are full of vital information explained clearly, and practical suggestions of ways you can begin to respond.
Prayer Magnets: Many children and young people struggle to articulate what it is they want to pray for. I'm sure we've all had those moments where we just can't find the words. Sometimes its just hard enough remembering to pray. These prayer magnets contain the words of real prayers from teens across this country and can be a helpful tool for creatively writing prayers. There are over 200 words that can be rearranged into millions of combinations. They are brilliant to stick up around the house as a reminder to pray, and a way for the family to creatively engage in prayer.
Swap: This is a new approach to reading the Bible together. Full of creative exercises, thought-provoking questions and space to get your ideas about God onto paper, Swap is a different take on the traditional Bible study. The idea is simple; two people partner up, each with a swap journal. You might be a parent partnered with your child, or two siblings, or two friends. Some parts you meet up to do together; other bits you do alone. Then, part-way through each session, you swap journals and read and pray through what the other person has written. We're all on a journey of faith and as fellow travellers we can all learn from each other. Swap is a fresh, fun way to ask the deep questions of life together, and maybe even stumble upon some answers.
Youthscape Dice: Emoticons are everywhere, and are a simple way of communicating complex thoughts and feelings. So we made them into dice as a resource for emotional literacy and wellbeing, as well as a way to help children and teens learn how to express their own stories, beliefs and experiences. There are loads of games you could play with these. We’ve given you five for starters in the accompanying booklet, but you’ll come up with more every time you use them. Use them around the dinner table to explain your day, or during games night, or at bed time to tell stories together.
