“Preparing For the Teen Years”
Parenting can be a challenge! Are your children ready to thrive in this culture? Do you feel equipped to tackle the tough decisions and issues that can have lifelong impact on your kids? How do your own struggles affect how you parent? Who do you go to for answers that are based on God’s truth? Children don’t come with a set of instructions so what is a parent to do?
You don’t have to navigate the teen years alone. With insightful teaching and the guidance of a credentialed New Life Counselor, this one day workshop can equip you to meet the challenges of raising children in the 21st century!
