Power to Parent II: Helping Children Grow Up (8 Week Course)

We are excited to announce that we will be teaching our "Power to Parent II: Helping Children Grow Up" course in a convenient new online format! 

Course Description

How do we nurture our children and provide the necessary elements for growth? How do we remove the impediments to becoming their own persons?

Building on the foundation of relationship set in Part I of the series, The Vital Connection, this sequel focuses on how to help children realize their potential as human beings. Growing older is no guarantee of growing up. Childhood is when most of the growing up should occur but we need to know how to cultivate the maturing process. This course sheds light on the adult’s role in the miracle of maturation.  

Some of the topics we will discuss include:

* What is a parent's role in helping their children grow up?
* The critical importance of rest in child development
* How to provide more than your child is pursuing
* What are the keys to raising responsible children?
* How (and when) children become their own persons
* How we can help our children learn to adapt

* And much, much more...

Each week, we will review a one-hour video lecture of Dr. Neufeld followed by one hour of facilitated discussion and Q&A. The course will be facilitated by....
