So how many things are you juggling right now? Come on, everyone is juggling something these days. Our worlds are like one big circus.
Between marriage, work, parenting, sports, extended family, church and countless other items, sometimes we need a prompt to remind us of things that are important to us, but can get lost in the mayhem. We need a cue.
What’s a cue? It’s a prompt. It’s a whisper in your ear: “Talk to your kid about this,” or “Why not try this at dinner tonight?” A nudge to talk about God, faith, life or to just have fun together.
It’s a way to incorporate conversations about God and His Big Story into everyday moments—during meal time, when you’re playing a game outside, when you’re in the car.
We have developed an interactive APP to help CUE parents to do three things with their kids:
Connect to God’s story.
Uncover something about life.
Experience something together.
Deuteronomy 6:5-9 says: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
This Parent CUE App provides you with simple cues throughout the week that remind you to pause and make the most of everyday moments with your preschool or elementary age child. But here’s something important to remember—you don’t have to follow every prompt.
You don’t have to do everything, just make it a goal to do something more. Just do one more thing—not five more. It will make a huge difference in your life and in the life of your child.
Every month, this Parent CUE App will focus on one specific theme for preschoolers one specific theme for elementary age kids. You will receive prompts for videos, activities, discussion questions and more. These prompts will come in the form of “times” that are a part of your everyday life. There’s even a section just for you called ParentTime that’s filled with parent blogs, podcasts and more.
To make the most of the Parent CUE App, set up a time when you can open the app on a regular basis to take advantage of the consistently updated content every week.
It will make the juggling act a bit more manageable.
