Family Life Seminar (2pm only)
This quarter, the Family Life Ministry is offering a School for Christian Growth class on Parenting is targeted at 3 age groups:
1. Parenting Infants and Toddlers (from pregnancy to 2 years of age): You will learn principles and skills to set routines that will bring normalcy to yourself and your young child. This is important especially for first-time parents so that you will not be caught up in child-centric parenting. When you are able to establish routines for your child in their formative years, a good foundation will be established for their subsequent nurturing years. Topics covered will include how to manage their meal-time, play-time and sleep-time.
2. Parenting Children (3 to 7 years of age): You will learn the importance of establishing good parenting and relationship principles in this phase of your parenting. The skills taught will enable you to spend more effort in nurturing instead of just instructing and correcting your child. Topics covered will include the importance of the husband/wife relationship, the role of the father, principles of obedience and principles of discipline.
3. Parenting Teenagers (12 to 18 years of age): You will learn that the successful parenting approach that your teen needs is for you to be an encourager and motivator. Your exemplary conduct plays a pivotal role as your teen will now be able to discern the difference between what is taught and practiced. Topics will include understanding the needs of teenagers, cyber-wellness and sexuality.
*Do note that these classes are only offered at 2pm
