107: Self-Esteem and Your Gen Zer
Thanks for joining the Parenting Q's conversation. I'm pastor Ryan and today we are diving into the beginnings of a very important conversation on self-esteem. Like it or not, you as a parent, youth worker, pastor, mentor, teacher, etc. have major influence over how a Gen Zer sees and understands self-esteem. They may not admit it, but they are still human and still desire to be championed and celebrated (it just looks a bit different). If you're not already following the conversation on Instagram, do so today by searching @parenting.qs. We are here for you and want to support you in every way we are able.

102: Love and Hate of Faith
Faith conversations are tricky. Why is that? Well, there is pressure to lead your student in the direction you desire while also allowing them the freedom to form their own opinions. Then, there is the reality that life is busy and full or many things to do and going to church or investing in one's faith is not always the easiest thing to do either. Tune into today's episode not for the answers but for the conversations surrounding faith, science, reason, and more as it relates to Gen Zers.
