It goes by fast. The responsibility to shape a child's faith and character can seem overwhelming.
If you are a parent, you have probably realized by now that you can’t make a toddler share, can’t force a child to have faith, and can’t compel a teenager to make smart decisions. But there is something you can do. You can make this week count. And then do it again, and again. What you understand about your kids now has the potential to change their future.
So don't miss it.
After Easter, we'll meet each Sunday (April 8, 15, and 22) at 10:00am in the Family Life Center, to talk about how we can better parent through the phases our kids go through. It will be fun and informative.
You have approximately 936 weeks from the time your child is born until he or she graduates from high school. It goes by fast, and kids change and grow quickly. It’s as if they shift or move on just as you’re starting to figure them out. It all makes the responsibility to shape a child’s faith and character feel overwhelming.
We'll introduce you to Phase Guides, an 18-part series of concise and interactive journal-style books that simplify what parents need to know about each phase of a kid’s life and give them the opportunity to discover more about their children—so they can make the most of every phase.
- what’s changing about your kid over the next 52 weeks,
- the 6 things your kid needs most,
- and 4 conversations to have in this phase.
The Phase Guides are a byproduct of The Phase Project, which is a synthesis of personal experience, academic research, and gatherings of leaders and educational experts from across the child development spectrum. Created in partnership with Parent Cue, these guides are designed to help you parent your child through every year.
After Easter, we'll meet each Sunday (April 8, 15, and 22) to talk about how we can better parent through the phases our kids go through. It will be fun and informative.
