Cartoon pajamas. Lunch boxes for Bible covers. Stuffed animals coming on retreat.

Middle school students are still kids in a lot of ways.

And if your program is separated out from the high school one, then you'll notice it more than if everyone was combined.

What should you do with this information? Are there things you need to consider? Here are some quick observations.

    How can you take advantage of middle school students still being kids? When is it a good time for potty humor? When students face grown up hurts, how can you help them cope? Who is going to be able to walk the fine line with them from kid to teen?

Thanks for listening! See you next week.
