Product Description

You may have an amazing program and be well connected to your students, but that doesn't always guarantee a problem-free ministry. Whether it's the guy in the back of the room who's always causing trouble, or the girl in the corner with a look of indifference, disruptive and apathetic students can hinder the effectiveness of your ministry. But you don't have to let discipline problems drive you out of youth ministry (or out of your mind!).
In this practical book, youth ministry veteran Les Christie will help you take a positive approach to discipline when it becomes necessary. When Church Kids Go Bad will:
  • Reveal the reasons behind problem behavior and show you how to take a positive approach to discipline Teach you how to use rules and consequences effectively
  • Help you evaluate your strengths and weaknesses in discipline situations (and improve your areas of weakness)
  • Give you dozens of specific, practical, helpful ideas you can use immediately with your students

In addition to addressing the issues that are common to any youth ministry setting, Les will also give special attention to issues that present even more challenge, such as alcoholism and vandalism, students with learning differences, and teens with attention deficit disorders.

    This book is awesome. Some of the principles described in the book I use with my Sunday school class and they are working! If you do not know how to deal with "special" kids, especially teenagers, and you do care about them, than this book is for you. Lots of helpful ideas make this book stand out from the ones that I read so far.
