Mgr, to see families grow and flourish in Christ.  Being a mother and step-mom to four wonderful children, Michelle has experience raising a blended family with daily struggles in ADD/ADHD, Anxiety Disorder, Mood Disorder, Dyslexia, and Dysgraphia.


We will cover two sessions out of an 8 week course in this seminar.  You will hear practical stories, step-by-step strategies, humor, and a lot of illustrations that make each 35-minute segment powerful for parent training followed by 35 minutes small group discussion.  (Additional sessions will be scheduled.) 


We will offer limited Childcare for those who need it. (Limited space for 20 kids ages 2-11)


Session 1 Teaching Kids to Listen and Follow Instructions-
A heart of cooperation is important in any family, but many children resist the simplest requests. In this lesson you will learn five steps to a good Instruction Routine. Five parts for the child and five parts for the parent provide families with direction in this essential area of family life. Learn how your work teaching cooperation and responsibility now will produce excellent employees for the future and how to help your children learn to listen to God as well.


Session 2 Reaching Deep into a Child’s Heart
-Children believe things in their hearts that are counter-productive. Thinking errors lead to bad attitudes, rebellion, and other parenting challenges. Learn how to influence what your children believe and gain several practical ways to do this deeper heart work in a child’s life. Parents love this session because they know that behavior change is not enough, children need to believe different things in their hearts.
