Many missionaries and family members often struggle when they are unable to complete their LDS mission. Tune in a 1 pm and join Dr. Kris Doty and Julie Hanks as they discuss the best ways to support an early-return missionary.
In the LDS community, I am often asked, “How can I prepare my son or daughter for full-time missionary service?” As a therapist who sees many teens who have a mission goal in mind, I look for 3 factors that may determine success in meeting the demands of mission service.
1. Social Skills
As parents, we often focus on our child’s G.P.A, but what does their “Citizenship” grades indicate? As a parent myself, when I attend parent/teacher conferences I ask, “How does my child interact with others? Are they kind and helpful with their peers? Are they respectful to you, the teacher?”. Social skills are paramount in relating well to others when sharing the gospel, getting along with companions, (24/7!) and showing respect and good communication with interacting with zone leaders, mission presidents and all their peers in the MTC.
