Uncommon Junior High School: Parents & Family is a group study for junior high students in your local church.

Growing up can be tough on tweens and on parents. Emotions run hot and cold, putting everyone under enormous pressure - but when God is the glue holding it all together, families are a lot harder to crack! With Parents & Family Uncommon Junior High Group Study, you can help the young teens in your group honor God in their families by dealing with their wildly fluctuating feelings and relating positively to their parents and siblings. Twelve sessions of activities and exercises will get students thinking and talking about how they can let God reign over their emotions and their family relationships. Plus, electronic files (in PDF format) of each session's reproducible student handouts are available for download.
