Just A Phase - A Resource for Parents and Leaders

Just A Phase is a resource for parents and leaders to help understand the different phases of children and youth's lives, to help us all be more present for them.

The Just a Phase Project is a collaborative, ongoing, effort assembling classic and innovative research, with practical application. It synthesizes the work of national leaders and authors around America to summarize and simplify hundreds of hours of research, interviews with licensed professional counselors, surveys of more than 250 state teachers of the year, countless conversations with age group ministry staff, so the average parent and leader can understand kids better.

This was done so adults don’t miss what’s happening during the critical phases of growing up and so leaders and parents can connect God’s love and forgiveness to the heart of the next generation.

There are free and paid resources available on their website so have a scout around.

You can find out more about the Just A Phase resources by listening to a couple of podcasts:

They also have a downloadable Roadmap for some key areas that you get if you sign up to their newsletter. I can't find where that sign up form is, its possible its a popup that I dismissed. But if you can't find it, then one that I have on file is here - download

We hope this helps you lead better and resource the parents of your youth.
