Parenting: beyond the bumper sticker

Your family probably doesn’t need to look like this in order to be happy …

but neither does it have to look like this …

Most of us want picture-perfect families: happy, healthy, peaceful, caring.

Instead we find that family life with its technological terrors, food wars, school blues, sibling rivalries and boundary battles can be messy and unmanageable.

Parenting beyond the bumper sticker is a seven-week workshop for parents of primary and high school kids. Attend all seven sessions or just those about areas that you could use a little help in.  Run on Wednesday evenings from 7p.m. to 9p.m. at the church, the details are as follows:

8 October – the legacy we leave: a look at what we want to leave our children in light of what our childhood left us

15 October – understanding your child better – how to balance common life challenges with unique personalities

22 October – talking to teens and tweens about STD’s – that’s sex, drugs and technology

5 November – talking tools 1 – setting better boundaries

12 November – talking tools 2 – improving communication

26 November – talking tools 3 – time to ask all of your practical parenting questions

3 December – don’t forget about faith – defining a family spirituality that underlies all you do

The total cost of the course is R100 or R20 per session.
