Strengthen relationships with and respect for parents.
Have youth collect photos and personal objects that tell about their parents. They could talk with their parents about how they met, what it was like when they grew up, their accomplishments, and their interests. Have youth bring a favorite song of their parents to play or perform for the group. Invite the youth’s parents to the meeting, and take turns having the youth introduce their parents to the group using the items they gathered. After the presentations, ask youth to express or write things they admire about their parents and show their gratitude for their sacrifices and love. Conclude the activity with a discussion on why God commanded us to “honor thy father and mother.” Have the youth reflect on how they can know and honor their Heavenly Father.
