WHO IS THE PARENTING CHILDREN COURSE FOR?
This course is for any parent with children in primary education. The course, while based on Christian principles, is relevant and helpful for any parent with or without a Christian faith or church background.
While ideally we would love both parents to attend the course, we recognise that this can be challenging for those with young children. It is fine for one parent to attend, or you could swap over each week.
The hosts of the Parenting Children Course, Will and Louie Van Der Hart, have lots of parenting experience and have three young children aged 8, 6 and 1 years old. Will is the Pastoral Chaplain at HTB and was previously a Primary Years Teacher. Louie is a Journalist and together they authored the Pregnancy Book. Louie also co-wrote, Soul Food for Mums, a devotional for new parents.
The authors of The Parenting Children Course and The Parenting Book, Nicky and Sila Lee, have worked with couples and families for over twenty years and speak regularly on parenting.
WHAT DOES THE PARENTING CHILDREN COURSE COVER?
Topics covered include:
• Laying strong foundations
• Love in action
• Setting boundaries and managing behaviour
• Building character
• Growing a confident child
A meal is provided at the beginning of each course evening, including a vegetarian & a gluten free option. This is followed by a talk, with opportunities for discussion in small groups. Please note that childcare is not provided.
The Parenting Course is run centrally once a year at HTB. The Parenting Teenagers Course and The Parenting Children Course are also run occasionally through HTB Connect Groups. For other Parenting Courses in your local area please visit themarriagecourses.org.
