Our lives are busy. As parents, we want to prioritize our children. We want to do everything we can to invest in them relationally, to guide them developmentally and to help them grow in their faith in Christ. But it’s just so easy to get caught up in the urgent day-to-day business of life.
Every parent has 936 weeks of influence from the time their child is born until they graduate. Parent Cue helps you count the weeks and connects you with practical things to read, do or say to help you engage with the heart of your child this week. Designed for parents of babies through high schoolers, these prompts will come in the form of videos and things to talk about in the morning, at meal time or while you are cuddling with your toddler or driving in the car. Each week there’s even a Phase Cue to help you understand the developmental phase your child is in today.
936 weeks. You don’t want to miss a single one.

I feel like this app is a good start. For starters, it’s super easy to navigate. I like that it shows you how many weeks you have with your kiddos before they graduate from high school- it kind of puts things in perspective. You get to watch what the kids are watching in Sunday school so you can talk about it later. There’s the monthly memory verse and activity to reinforce the lessons, too.
The additional parent blog and podcast are nice resources- my kids are little-little, so it’s easy to get caught up and forget that they’re still new to EVERYTHING.
I wish it had an option to add more activities or memory verses. I’m seeking for any tips to put God’s word into tangible actions that they can understand and connect to. (I.e. giving them honey to eat while saying good words and vinegar while saying unkind things.) And they’re little sponges, I know they can handle more than one memory verse a month.
I really like the Parent Cue app. I’ve tried various ways to have devotional times with my kids ages 10 and 4. It has often felt forced and not productive. I appreciate that there is a different lesson/video for my 10 year old than my 4 year old. The lessons are well done with up to date talk, themes, dress, etc. I especially appreciate that African American’s are included in the the line up-I could tell my daughter was excited about that. My kids learn these lessons on Sunday and we can go back and watch them once or twice during the week. The conversation starters also help keep the theme going in a natural way during the week. Parent Cue is definitely a perfect fit for us!
I absolutely love parent cue! It has helped me to carve out intentional time with my son as well as growing us closer together, spiritually. I can tell my son is thinking about what he is watching and he’s understanding who Jesus is. In a world of technology, I appreciate the content and quality this app brings to my son. I love how this app caters to the age of the child. So often as a parent it’s hard to know what is age appropriate, this app does the hard work for you. It’s enabled me to count my days with my son while I have him, to train him up in the ways of the lord and watch him soar in life. I love it! Easy to use, relevant for both parent and child.
Highly recommend it!
