Tractor Girl

As a parent I think there is a complimentary role for the family and the youth worker(s), whilst ensuring the two remain clearly seperate spaces.

I trust youth worker(s) to give my daughter the "institutionalised version" & give her the space and support to work through that version, whilst at home I ensure that she is given the space and experience of a slightly more radical, far less evangelical version.

What I hope we can do, between us, is help her to explore and develop, in relationship with God the "version" which is right for her, understanding the strengths and limitations. Hopefully this will also give the ability to respect other interpretations, whilst having confidence in her own.
