PARENTING

** childcare provided
*children welcome

GRACE-BASED PARENTING**

If you have any kids in your home, you know 2 things:
1) every child is unique and 2) no child comes with an “owner’s manual.” These two truths can make parenting HARD! Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach
to parenting, there IS a parenting model that can make all the difference for you and your family! Grace-Based Parenting is a model built upon two truths: 1) every child has three inner needs and 2) we can use God’s example of grace to train our children. If you have a newborn at home, teens, have raised your own and now have grand- kids, or even if you want to learn about parenting before you make the decision to have kids, this class is for YOU! Meets at the Norton campus.

Optional: $10 “Grace-Based Parenting” book on Amazon.
