.Parental involvement and support throughout the confirmation process is vital. Parents are the number one influence in the life of their children. Although it may seem at times that teens are distant and rebellious, parents hold more influence than teachers, social media, and even friends. God intends for parents to be the spiritual leader of their children. This can be an intimidating and even frightening responsibility. Recent research shows that the number one factor in determining the level of faith and commitment to discipleship in teens is the faith of the parents, meaning that a teen’s faith often mirrors the faith of their parents.
