THE PARENTING COURSE

parenting-children

The Parenting Course is designed to help parents, step parents, prospective parents and carers, who are raising children through their early years.

It is based on Biblical Christian principles and is relevant and helpful for any parents with or without a Christian faith. 

The Parenting Course is a DVD based course presented by Nicky & Sila Lee from Relationship Central and hosted by Dave and Megan Shepherd

WHY DO THE COURSE?

  • Children do not arrive with an instruction manual
  • No role we undertake is more important than parenting

Family life is under great pressure today and parents face bewildering choices about how to parent effectively. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. We can all learn how to make even the happiest family better.

HOSTS

Dave and Megan and other well qualified couples from City Lights Church.  Dave and Megan are parents themselves and aside from raising their own children, have worked with teenagers, couples and whole families for over 15 years.

WHAT DO WE DISCUSS?

Over the 5 weeks of The Parenting Children Course the following topics are covered:

  1. Building Strong Foundations
  2. Love in Action
  3. Setting Boundaries
  4. Building Character
  5. Our Long Term Aim

A typical evening begins at 7pm with snacks, tea and coffee followed by a talk and a Q and A. We finish at 9.00pm.

Meetings are held in a variety of venues from homes to auditoriums, depending on the size of the group.

COSTS

The cost for the full course is R650 for couples and R450 for single parents.  It is preferable,where possible and applicable to have Mom and Dad at all of these times.
