June 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Would you like to connect with other parents going through similar things?
Would you like to be a part of building the community of engaged families at Messiah?
If you answered yes to any of these we hope you will consider joining a short term parenting group using the podcast “Raising Boys and Girls” Season 1 which is based on the book “Are my Kids on Track? The 12 Emotional, Social, and Spiritual Milestones Your Child Needs to Reach” by Sissy Goff, David Thomas, and Melissa Trevathan.
The structure of the meetings will be to meet for roughly an hour over zoom. We will listen to the podcast episode that corresponds with the chapter we are covering (roughly 25 minutes long) with some stop and starts along the way to discuss what the authors are sharing and how that applies to our individual kiddos. If you have the time to read the chapter before the meeting, wonderful, it is worth it. If you don’t that is okay too and you can still get A LOT from listening to the podcast (where the authors summarize the chapter) and participating in the discussion.
Our first meeting will be on June 1st at 7:30, and we will meet for the next four Tuesdays while we cover the SOCIAL development of children. Then, we will likely have a short break before picking back up with four weeks of EMOTIONAL development; then we will conclude with a separate four week session on SPIRITUAL development.
The idea is to keep the group small enough that we can really get to know one another and can be a supportive group for each other as we navigate the realities of parenting!!! So, if you are interested in joining us, please SIGN UP here.
