Sneaking Out: Sneaking out was definitely a no go in my house. I remember one of my friends asked if I could sneak out and go to a movie with them. I went and asked my mom if I could sneak out, and that was the last time it ever crossed my mind.
Go out of your way to meet parents. When you call a students house, create small talk with the mom and dad if they answer the phone. Also greet parents warmly as they drop their kids off at youth group and pick them up. Tim Schmoyer
