parenting from the tree of life

Sundays, January 13 - June 9, 2019
9:00 am – Room 306

$21 for the workbook.  |  Sign up online today!

An 18-week class designed for couples to work together in training their preschool to preteen children. The focus of the study is to learn to speak life into our children and our homes while raising morally responsible children.

Jason & Johanna Humphrey are leading this three-part series which includes:

This three part series includes:

  • Part One: Life, Children and Relationships speaks to the relational components associated with healthy parenting. Because children tend to reflect the priorities and values of their home life, what is important to Mom and Dad will become important to their children, and will influence what each child becomes in the future.
  • Part Two: Life, Children and Character Development covers critical components of character training and explains the guiding principles for raising children who are kind, courteous, respectful, cooperative, confident, and certainly well mannered. No child arrives at this level of moral distinctiveness if the home life from which he or she comes is not already conversant with such virtue. Part two is as much for parents as it is for children.
  • Part Three: Life, Children, Encouragement and Correction takes up the challenges associated with the correction side of training. Correction is not all about fixing undesirable or wayward behavior—parents must also pay attention to the preventative components of training that reduce the amount of correction needed in the first place. Proactively encouraging behaviors that help children stay on track and knowing how to properly correct children to put them back on track is the focus of Part Three.

Parenting your toddler

2019 dates coming soon.

This is a class for families with 18-36 month olds.

The Toddlerhood Transition Series focuses on a brief, but significant window of growth, a vibrant period of your child’s life, from eighteen to thirty-six months of age. This eighteen month period is an amazing, spontaneous, and engaging yet challenging time for the emergent child and his or her parents because toddlers have their own peculiar way. They speak in full sentences, throw difficult tantrums, laugh hilariously, and lack impulse control. They can provide the best fun and the worst behavior. They can also make you feel like the best Mom or Dad one minute and the worst, the next. Learning how to manage your toddler, while encouraging learning and discouraging behavior in need of future correction are primary goals of The Toddlerhood Transition Series.

Questions? Contact children@mefchurch.org for additional details.
