The busy commuting lifestyle can be brutal for young parents.  It’s hard enough to find time at home, and especially when children are young, it’s hard to get everything done before bedtime, and everyone out the door in the morning again.  This course has great practical help for parents of children up to age ten, along with worksheets and discussion questions to help you process what you’re learning.

If you’re parenting with a partner, ask them to watch or listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

This course is also great in groups – start by checking it out alone, but then invite someone else or a couple to join  you.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Day 40 - Encouraging Responsibility

Training our children for healthy independence
• we don't own our children
• we are helping our children move from parental control to self-control
• letting them go can be hard for parents
• a gradual process over eighteen years
• allow them to make their own decisions and learn from their own mistakes
• unhealthy control can be caused by wanting to look good, fear of failure, stress, or perfectionism

How can you allow your children to learn from their mistakes while still protecting them sufficiently?
