Overview

Every child matters to God. He does not make any distinction between his children. Because they matter to him, they matter to us—even the little lost sheep. Church must be a place where children are valued and meeting their needs is top priority. Until we change the way that we see children, our point of view will only lead to frustration. This pack will help you understand the four basic needs of those who misbehave and will help you provide a caring environment to meet those needs.

This tool is adapted from "Behaviors That Bug," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by Susan Shadid. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
