Parents' Voices Grow "Dimmer" Over Time... 

Yikes. But you know it's true.  When kids are young, their parents' voices are loud, clear, and influential. But over time, mom and dad's voices grow dimmer (to varying degrees with different kids, but still...).

What have YOU done in the face of this reality?

I would like to help preteens and teens find godly mentors in their local churches.  Even myself, as a "Parent who thinks he did many things 'right,'" I want godly mentors speaking into my children's lives.  This is too important to leave to chance.

What are your thoughts?  How can I help?

What About Secular Pop Music? 

Hi mommies!

My daughters [Juli - age 19, and Natalie - age 12] always liked some secular TV shows and music.  Not a lot, but some.  Disney Channel's old show "Phineas and Ferb," and a few others.  They like a few Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Selena Gomez songs.  They are big "I Love Lucy" fans [they got that from their mommy - ha ha].

What about you?  Do you let your kiddos listen and watch TV and download secular pop music? (all points of view are welcome here - I'm just askin' - not judgin')

If so, what are their favorite shows and musical artists?

What’s the Best Thing About Your Family? 

People used to see my family and me onstage and think, “They must always be like that” [playful, having fun, singing and dancing together, not fighting].  Umm..no.  We're a regular family: I say hurtful things to Kathleen sometimes, she disrespects me sometimes [or at least I feel disrespected], the kids act up - you know what I mean...

But we do have great times together!
- We get in tickle-fights on the floor in the living room
- We play sports together in the street
- We do "character voices" and impersonations

How about you?  What are some of the things you and your kids will remember from your child-raising years?  Join the conversation! [click below to add your comment]

Consider This...

 

“Do kids go around singing the songs?”
Good question. It’s THE question, actually. Children go around singing the most melodic, clever, memorable songs they’ve heard. Songs from musicals, Disney songs, adult worship songs.

But parents and Children’s Ministers don’t have time to preview all the Christian kids’ music CDs to find biblically accurate, high-energy, fun music.

And many Christian kids’ CDs sound like kids’ choir rehearsal CDs. Today’s 3rd-6th grade kids don’t like that sound and style.

 

And then there are the motions. Most Kids’ Church motions are either too simplistic, or too much like show choreography. [My wife] Kathleen Biagi makes up the best motions in the world, because her motions:
...are simple enough for the kids to learn.
...are complicated enough that it takes some "game".
...“Lift” the song and make it more fun and memorable!

And what about the heart and motivation of the artist? I want to support artists and companies that truly share my biblical values.  Do you?
So, you need a website that's fast and easy, with Bible/Teaching Points so you can find which songs to use and when, what all the lyrics [not just the :30 preview section]. You need to see the motions so you can know how they will work in your church, home, or club.

This Website Includes:
- :90-second Previews of songs [with individual song downloads]
- Previews of Dance Moves [with individual song downloads]
- Which RobSongs to use in Kids’ Church, and when
- Kids’ Worship Leader Tips, Blog, Forum
- What People Are Saying About Rob

NOTE: Rob Biagi is also the Kids’ Ministry Music Leader at Compass Bible Church in Aliso Viejo, CA www.compasschurch.org
