Have you ever noticed an expression your child is making, or a slightly annoying habit they are exhibiting, only to learn from your spouse that they have definitely learned it from you? It happens to me from time to time. Apparently, I say “oh, dear” in a British accent A LOT!
Of course, we all know this mimicking runs much deeper. Our kids learn from us: how to resolve conflict, how to love each other, and of course how to worship. If it sometimes seems like too much weight to bear, please don’t fret! No one is born a parenting expert. And don’t worry if it sometimes seems you must be doing everything wrong. Kids have a knack for changing up their behavior as soon as you figure out a way to course correct their latest infringements. *Sigh.*
We say this a lot, but we really mean it. Our Children’s Ministry team is here to lend a helping hand whenever you need. Not because we are parenting experts and get everything right at all times, but because we really believe in equipping parents and building a community.
Starting February 7th (through mid-May) we will be hosting parent small groups twice a month in between services (10:10 a.m. -10:45 a.m). We’d love for you to sign up! We will cover topics such as technology, how to talk to kids about difficult subjects, and discipline, just to name a few. We’ll give a quick overview and then break into small groups.
It’s always good to invest time in your children, so please join us and sign up here!
