"Your Family Values"
We state our opinions, but we live our values. With that in mind, what does your family really value? Time? Trust? Relationships? Christ? Most parenting styles and schedules fail to reflect these values. In this session, parents will learn how to:
"Disciplined Kids Come From Disciplined Parents"
Almost everyone who works with students agree that our society is suffering from a crisis of respect. Much of that lack of respect stems from a lack of discipline in the home. It seems like the advice from the "experts" changes every decade on how to best discipline children. How do you know whom to trust? How about the One who created your children? In this frank discussion, Jeff and Debby will take parents through the Scriptures to point out Biblical guidelines so parents can make the decision that is right for their child. Once parents feel more secure in their knowledge, they must then be willing to be consistent in following through in what they know. To help them take action, this session also provides some very realistic, useful ideas on discipline in various age stages.

This session will not only lead you in making a commitment to your children's future, but equip you to be able to live up to the promises you make.
This is obviously a much-needed conference for any church wanting to be intentional in discipling parents.
