Communicate one-on-one with your child
Reach out to the head of the youth group
Speak to your child’s friends
Give your child a favorable incentive to go to youth group
If your child decides to give youth group another shot, it may help to motivate him. Tell him that you’ll let him choose the next movie he wants to watch. Tell him that you’ll take him out for a healthy treat if he actually makes the effort to do all of the things that are part of youth group. If your child has a terrific incentive to take part in youth group, it may just get him on the path to doing the right thing. You should always do everything you can to encourage your child to do things that promote fulfillment and a well-rounded and balanced existence in general.
