Required Reading for the Parents Jun 13, 2006
As a youth leader, I would make this required reading for every parent if I had the budget and the power. Since I have neither, I will simply give my strong endorsement. The heart of this book is one of partnership. This is a theme that I feel passionate about and "After You Drop Them Off" provides a clear picture for becoming allies. The detailed descriptions and clearly communicated heart is important for both `rookie' and `veteran' parents.
Clark has a great skill of painting a picture of biblical principles in action in the relationship between a youth leader and a parent. I especially appreciated the perspective on being considerate to the youth leader as an individual. Whether that is through caring while constructively criticizing or simply encouraging your students leader without prompting, I feel like I would personally want to be treated this way.
This is also a great book for youth leaders. Not only will your head be continually nodding in agreement as you read, but it gives you insight into the parents world. Having worked with students for nearly nine years and not yet having my own children, it is easy to misunderstand where parents are coming from.
Any parent that wants to take an active role in the life of their young person should pick up a copy of "After You Drop Them Off". It will provide clarity and practical steps that parents can take to better their relationship with the allies they have in youth leaders.
