To Parents, to Help Support Your Teenagers & their Faith:
The greatest impact on the identity and belief system of a teenager is meaningful conversations with their parents. YDisciple offers short videos and discussion questions for parents and their teenagers. It also provides resources to build a small faith sharing group for teenagers with their friends.
