|When Should the Bishop Intervene with Youth? from bbell|
Dec. 9th, 2009 at 12:57 pm
Concerning wayward YM. When to intervene and get the bishop involved????
I put all of the factors together as I reasoned on what to do:
New school/new friends
I figured with all of these factors it was time to bring in the Bishop. So I walked into the Bishop’s office and laid out what I thought was going on. The Bishop reacted quickly. The next day he visited the parents and they talked about the YM. The parents said that they were also suspicious of drug use and had been recently looking through his room looking for drugs. They expressed thanks that we as a ward leadership cared so much about their son to make efforts to help.
So the question is. When and how should youth leaders go about trying to help the youth that they work with? Can trying to help backfire?
