From time to time I post a question that comes into the blog for YOU to answer. What advice would you give this youth pastor who is asking about violence and accidents that happen during youth group. Was hoping you could share your thoughts in the comments, too. Weigh in!

How have you dealt with violence that happens on your watch?  Students fighting, horseplay getting out of hand, etc? I’ve had a few incidents over the years and each time I wonder if there was some systematic problem with our setup that should have prevented it or if this is just something that happens every blue moon and you have to deal with them individually. Help!
