This core curriculum lays the groundwork for your parenting, no matter where you are in the process. This programme, previously known as Growing Kids God’s Way, is designed to take parents through the process of building a loving family unit by raising morally responsible children. The Middle Years program has been amalgamated into this course to form a 20 sessions course, divided into four modules.
Course Delivery: This updated GKGW takes you and your child through from Pre-school to Primary school (3 to 12 years old). Participants attend class once a week with other couples. Participants are expected to pre-read and prepare for each week’s lesson. During class the focus will be on case studies and group discussions. The learning methodology is Socratic. Each couple receives their course manuals and homework to complete
MODULE 4 Discipline and Empowerment
Session 1: Repentance, Forgiveness, and Restoration
Unfortunately, people often confuse regret with repentance. You cannot repent without regret, but you can regret without repentance.
Session 2: Discipline Issues (Part One)
We can allow our children too many choices that are not age appropriate. The result is that a child becomes “wise in their own eyes”.
Session 3: Discipline Issues (Part two)
We look at whining, lying, cheating, stealing, temper tantrums, micro-vs-macro rebellion, power struggles etc.
