Session 1: Biblical Themes
– What does the Bible say about us as parent, our children, and the goal of parenting?
Session 2: God Speaks – What does God have to say to his people? In Ephesians 6:1-4 God speaks clearly, authoritatively, and wisely to both parents and children.
Session 3: Training and Instruction/Routines and Rules – How do we train our children to obey us? What role do instruction and habits play? How do we teach our children to put off bad actions and to put on good ones. In this section we introduce the Family Principles Poster and the Character Chart.
Session 4: Correction, Discipline and Rewards– What does God say about how we use real life consequences to help train our children?
Family Reflection – We build time into the seminar for husband and wives to talk. You will leave with a plan!
Patient Parenting: Overcoming Your Anger – This additional 1-2 hour session fits easily as a Sunday School lesson or stand alone session.
