- giving “the talk” even if your parents never gave the talk to you

KEYS TO IMPACTING YOUR FAMILY
There is a lot of confusion surrounding our kids – their family relationships, sexuality, even their destiny in God. They receive conflicting messages from media, their peers, their families, and sometimes the church. Join Julie Hiramine as she equips parents to be the voice of truth and imparts God’s divine intention for families.
Studies prove that children who have a strong sense of connection to their parents make better choices when faced with the pressure to engage in high risk behaviors. Learn how to connect with your children (at every age) in our confusing, modern world and develop relationships that stand the tests of time (including the turbulent tween and teen years!).
The negative messages rolling around in our culture are enough to drag anyone down – yet they seem to be particularly targeted at our children. “You’re not thin enough, smart enough, good enough, etc.” seem to be the only messages they hear when they watch television, go online, or hang out with their peers. A parent’s positive words, springing from the life-giving Word of God, can bring about hope and victory in a child struggling under all the negative. Come learn how to combat the fear and negativity in your child’s life and instill in them the knowledge of who they are in Christ.
Parents are key when it comes to building the conviction and character children will need to push out all the confusing messages and hold fast to the truth of God’s word. Learn how to express and demonstrate clear expectations and help your children build internal boundaries that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
Sometimes a lack of Dad’s involvement in his child’s life comes about not for lack of trying, but because of circumstances. Whether dad is extremely busy or is struggling with his own battles, he can make a lasting difference on his children. Fathers will gain insights on connecting with their children at different stages of their lives, while moms will learn how to support dad in his vital role.
