Christian Parenting: The Challenge
Real help for the challenges of parenting!
For parents of children of all ages:
Foundations of Parenting
These six week classes are based on Adlerian principles presented in the book "Children: the Challenge" and the teachings of Christianity in the New Testament. (Parenting Teens is based on the book Positive Discipline for Teens). Topics include: Avoiding Power Struggles, Maintaining Mutual Respect, Understanding Each Child and Their Behavior, Redirecting Mistaken Goals of Behavior, The Power of Parental Prayer, Encouragement, and the Use of Natural and Logical Consequences
Comments from Recent Participants: "We are a more calm, more ‘together’ family.”
"We feel better about ourselves, our children; there is less tension at home."
"Before this class we were very desperate and depressed with regard to our children and how we were interacting with them. The best thing is that now I have tools - concrete things - to use and fall back on."
"Life is much smoother and more fun!"
Faciliator has been trained by the Office of Laity and Famiy Life (Archdiocese of St. Louis). Margaret has used the principles in her own family for over 25 years and taught classes for 15 years in area hospitals, schools, and parishes throughout the St. Louis area.
