When you take care of yourself, everyone benefits.

As we look at setting rules/limits for our children, this is one of the questions we must ask ourselves.

A child’s job is to push rules/limits; the parents’/caregivers’ job is to set them.

Parents Explore:

  • how to avoid conflict with your child
  • how to encourage responsibility land self-managment
  • how to resolve problems
  • how to prevent frustrating no-win power struggles
  • how to build trust, consideration and respect.

Children Explore:

  • how and why rules are important
  • working alongside authority
  • learn how to set their own boundaries
  • setting boundaries as a family.

5 Love Languages of Children Book Study

For all ages–

  • learn what your love language is
  • learn what your child’s love language is.

Your love language may be totally different from that of your child.  While you are doing all you can to show your child love, he may be hearing it as something completely opposite.  Discover your child’s primary language and learn what you can do to effectively convey unconditional feelings of respect, affection, and commitment that will resonate in your child’s emotions and behavior.

Taking registrations now.

6:00-7:30 pm
