We all wish it came with a handbook, but thankfully we have wise parents that have gone before us to help us out. This course is aimed at pre-school and primary aged children and Ps Clare, who is a parent and a teacher, lays out biblical foundations for parenting. She addresses some of the lies in culture that tell us how to parent and presents what the Bible says our roles as parents are. She also teaches on how to parent rebellion vs. childishness, how to work out consequences for our kids, how to nurture them spiritually, how to be a child-focused parent but not a child-centred parent. It’s all there.
If you have children in this age bracket or are new to Biblical parenting – this course will bless you. It will also allow you to chat with other parents and ask the facilitator about things you’re experiencing as a parent that you’re struggling with. Lastly, if you are parenting with a spouse/partner this course will open up conversations to chat about where you’re at with parenting. Are you on the same page? Sometimes we need to take time out to learn and communicate. So yes, do this course. Your family will be blessed because of it.
Normally held over three sessions, these courses have teaching and discussion times on various topics, which change every term.
Session topics have included: How do I know I can believe the Bible?, Prophecies Fulfilled in Israel, History of the Church & denominations.
