How do you handle "that one kid" who always disrupts your talks? They constantly draw attention to themselves (both positively and negatively) and sometimes, if you're honest, you kind of deflate when they walk in the room.

I have that kid in my group. And I want them to keep coming! But right now it's a challenge. In this episode, I talk about my game plan, as well as what's happened in the past.

Suggestions welcome!


Here are some things I talk about in this episode:

    Connecting with the parents of that kid (are they like this at home!?). Getting your volunteers on board (and in that kid's space). Remembering grace and peace and self-control other important fruits of the Spirit (for that kid and for you)

Have any additional thoughts here? I'd love to know!
