Conversations that Matter: Raising Resilient Teens
Thank you to all who attended this worthwhile event! We even received a few parents who had suggested we bring this topic to the elementary schools, as anxiety is affecting younger and younger students. We also all agreed that we needed access to the powerpoint Mrs. Rhew created for her speaking points. Click here to view Purposeful Parenting, which includes the Emotional Development Scale, detailing emotional growth from 2 - 18.
Rev. Carl Beekman shared his warm insights and encouragement as he continues to minister to families in the grips of stress and anxiety. Just as we can hurry about our stressful day without noticing the sun, we too can journey through the trials of life without inviting the Son to guide us. Rev. Beekman encouraged us all to seek guidance from our Father as we guide our own children.
Stay tuned for our 3rd Quarter Conversations that Matter! We will announce the date and topic soon!
