Discipline that Connects – Langley
May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Do you ever feel like you’re speaking another language when disciplining your child? Or you can’t seem to grasp that illusive magical formula for obedience? You’re not alone. Many well-intentioned parents miss their child’s heart during discipline which can inadvertently build discouragement and resentment resulting in more bad behaviour, instead of what they actually long for: wisdom and respect. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
You can actually reach your child’s heart and achieve peaceful results while bringing out the best in both of you – instead of the worst.
Jim and Lynne Jackson, the directors of Connected Families will share their own personal journey — both humorous and impactful — toward learning to parent from four powerful messages that all children long to hear:
“You are SAFE”
“You are LOVED”
“You are GOD’S WORKMANSHIP”
“You are RESPONSIBLE”.
The workshop equips parents with practical tools for effective discipline and ends with an uplifting call to action: let go of your primary (and exasperating) goal of trying to manage your kids’ behaviour. Start mentoring their belief, empower them to manage their own behaviour, and watch kindness and wisdom grow in your family! This isn’t a quick fix. But it is a lasting fix. What will you do to take the next step toward becoming a more grace-filled parent, even in the midst of discipline challenges?
The target audience for this workshop is parents of kids ages 2 to 18 who want to discipline in a way that changes hearts, not just behavior.
