Reggie Joiner of thinkorange.com has spent years researching, testing, and re-evaluating how we do church and especially how we do church with and for our families. Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy created a resource called "It's Just a Phase" for parents/caregivers and leaders of churches to use to understand what children go through emotionally, physically, and spiritually at every phase of their first 18 years of life. Their goal is "to summarize and simplify an overwhelming amount of research related to child development so the average leader and parent can understand kids better. A parent has 936 weeks between birth and graduation to leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their child's future." Below are phase cards for each of the first 18 years of your child's life adapted for Unitarian Universalism. Click a button to explore a phase in your child's life or pick one up when you are at All Souls. You can also purchase the original phase cards at parentcue.org.
