252 Home is a strategy to combine your influence with that of a parent’s to have a bigger impact in the life of a child. That’s why we are providing simple CUEs to help parents make the most of everyday moments together.
These CUEs are based on Deuteronomy 6:7, NIV:
“Impress them upon 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.”
From this verse, we’ve noticed some specific “times” that happen every day, in every family. By helping parents identify the key times they already spend with their child, and CUEing them to leverage those times for intentional moments together, we hope to help parents instill faith and character in the heart of their child.
So, starting in September 2011, all of the 252 Home resources (and the First Look Home resources, too) will be marked with a “Times” cue. So you can begin to train your parents to “look for the CUE” this year.
As part of your monthly curriculum download, you can print or email the “252 Parent CUE” in either a monthly or weekly version. Each Parent CUE comes not only with an explanation of what you are doing in your ministry, but it also gives the parent one key Meal Time question for each week.
In order to provide your parents with more “Times” prompts, you may choose to incorporate our other 252 Home resources including Studio252.tv, CUE Box, or the Parent Cue app.
