Recently I read a quote made by Dame Jacqueline Wilson, which read as follows, " Basically, many teenagers want to be told " No, I am not allowing you to go there." It comes as a relief to them and then they can moan and groan to their friends. Parents are well- meaning and want to be popular with their children, and they remember clearly how they felt when their own parents told them they couldn't do things. But they need to set boundaries and offer guidance.

As I read this quotation I realized the importance of rules, standards in our society whether is in the church or in school or in the home. We need such guidance from those who have been placed in such position to give leadership to youth. Or do we really need them, is it necessary to have boundaries after all?

Let me here from you do you think parents or in the absence of them, churches should set boundaries for their children. If so what kind of characteristics should christian parents or youth leaders have to meet this challenge of giving guidance to young people.

My heart has been overjoyed with the comments that have been posted in support of this great idea of having a Social Network developed for Seventh day Adventist Youth. I want to thank all of you who have contributed through your very very positive comments. we are encouraged to go on with this dream for our precious youth around the world. It will not be easy but we got to do it!! Our youth deserve it!! We now live in the world of internet and cannot afford to neglect our youth without providing them with such sites. This is the 21st century. Our church must be in the front burner of ensuring that we march with the times in which we live in.

Our youth spend most of their time hanging out in these chat rooms. If we want to minister and reach our youth we got to develop this kind of site. We have to go where our youth spend their quality time. I want to see a site where our youth can visit and talk with their friends 24/7. We are not going to compete with social network sites like "Myspace Hi5, or Facebook." But we will come up with a site that you will be proud of as a Seventh day Adventist youth. It will be a site that will be another "Wow" in the history of Youth Ministry.

It is my honest desire that if we develop a social network it must be a world class one. It must have quality. Seventh day Adventist environment. Informative and Mission oriented. One which our youth will be proud of. We will keep you updated. And for all of you who are waiting for this social network keep on checking out my blog from time to time. If you have any ideas to be considered as we work on this dream let us know.

Continue to pray for this dream!! Please Pray, Pray!!!

May God bless you and keep you safe in all you do in your daily walk,
Your Friend
