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 books "Children: the Challenge" and Positive Discipline for Teenagers"as well as the teachings of Christianity in the New Testament. This authoritative, democratic style of parenting is respectful yet firm, and emphasizes loving, empathetic, encouraging relationships.
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!"
