Does your girl have strong opinions? While the media often highlights teens advocating for controversial cultural issues, Gen Z-ers are often hesitant to express firm beliefs on moral issues.
Curious minds wonder—how can a generation fueled by the justice mindset be afraid to publicly share their beliefs? The answer: judgement.
Young people, especially young Christians, are hyper-sensitive to appearing judgmental or intolerant. While it’s true that Jesus instructs us not to judge others, there is a difference between being judgmental and standing up for what is right. Invite your daughter into a conversation around big topics like climate change or life issues and help her find her voice. Encouraging our girls to stand up for what’s right and just is one way to prepare them to be the next generation of Christian leaders in our country.
