Is there anything better than being a parent? Is there anything harder than being a parent? Do your kids make you want to pull your hair out? Our kids made us pull all of my hair out! This workshop is full of principles and truths from God's Word on the daunting task of raising kids. Whether you are in the early stages of parenting, walking through the teen years, or are getting ready to send them off, you will find insights and practical how tos that can be applied starting today. This workshop will walk you through the toddler discipline decisions as well as the teenage rebellion issues from a couple who have "been there and done that."
Developed by Dave and Ann Wilson, national marriage and parenting conference speakers for 26 years--and chaplains for the Detroit Lions (this year we win the Super Bowl!)--this material will impact you and the way you raise your children. Trust us: you will be glad you took this workshop and SO WILL YOUR KIDS!
Rock Your Family
Sessions 1 & 2 begin where all parenting needs to start: the foundation. Where are you as parents going to get your truth from to raise your kids? Speaking of raising them, what is your target? What are you trying to raise? How will you know if you're successful? It all starts with the foundation and the bullseye. It's time to start hitting the target.
10 Commandments of Parenting
Throughout this workshop, Dave and Ann will teach you their Rock Your Family Top 10, or what they call their "10 Commandments." Every parent needs to know and live these ten in order to raise children who can make a positive impact on the world.
The early years (0-12) are some of the most exhausting years for parents and especially single parents...Dave was raised by a single mom and now he understands! How do you get control? How do you survive? How do we discipline? Will this stage ever end? Find helpful tools for thriving through these critical years.
And then I had teenagers...here come the hormones! The teen years can cripple a parent, especially if we don't understand what's really going on inside their hormone-infested brains! Find out what your teen really longs for in life and what he or she is looking for from his or her parents. You don't want to miss these sessions!
Sex, Porn, and Your Kids
One of the hardest things for many parents to do is to talk with their kids about sex. In this world, your kids are being bombarded by all kinds of sexual information and images. Guess who needs to step into this sex world with them? You! Find out how...and when...and how important it is for a parent to walk with them as they make crucial decisions about sex. You will be thankful you didn't miss these sessions.
God and Your Kids
Find out how to lead your children spiritually. It is so easy to outsource their spiritual development, but God says it is your job...not the church's or the school's. Learn how to invest in a spiritual college fund for your kids. Trust me, this is a college fund that will pay dividends for years to come.
Mistakes Parents Make
Finally watch Dave and Ann talk in a Sunday sermon about five key mistakes they made in raising their kids. Every parent makes mistakes, but these are five that you don’t want to copy. Humor and honesty will hopefully help you avoid these parenting pitfalls.
