Preparing for Adolescence: The 5th Step
What do you say to an adolescent who’s getting ready to enter
those turbulent teenage years? Dr. James Dobson, one of America’s leading
family psychologists, knows how to speak directly and sincerely to today’s
adolescents about the topics that trouble them most. Topics include avoiding
feelings of inferiority, handling peer pressure, drug abuse, puberty, sexual
development, romantic love, overcoming discouragement, sound decision-making
and handling independence.
In this Faith Path, parents will attend a 2-hour session
where they will be walked through the topics of Dr. Dobson’s book, and know
what to expect and how to dialogue effectively with their pre-adolescent on
these important topics. Then the parents will plan an overnight trip with their
child (mother/daughter, father/son if possible) and listen to the book
“Preparing for Adolescence” on the car-ride to their destination. This trip
will allow parent and child to learn together about what is ahead
developmentally for the adolescent and have intentional conversations that will
open up lines of communication between parent and child for years to come. For more information about this event please contact Andrea Andris
Our next Preparing for Adolescence class
will be held on May 5th.
Registration opening soon.
