Online Event – Parenting Tips for Challenging Times
Let’s face it – so many things are different for parents and kids these days.
That’s why Dr. Scott Turansky has created this
LIVE Online Parenting Seminar for you to watch NOW!
If you are a parent, you’ll want to get a cup of coffee and a pad and pen so you can take notes. Keep in mind that current challenges children face provide opportunities for them to work on life skills they’ll use for the rest of their lives. You are the teacher and a heart-based approach is so much more powerful than a reward/punishment system.
There’s no excuse for bad attitudes, badgering, arguing, or meanness in a family. Helping children get their school work done isn’t just about the tasks. It’s also about the dynamic that takes place in your home to get things done.
When children reveal unbridled emotions, parents need to know what to do. The goal is more than calming them down. Parents can do a lot to help children manage their emotions both now and ongoing. And, the second session will teach you practical ways to get your children back on track when they are off track.
And then there are the questions about electronics. The problem of managing electronics isn’t new, but it certainly has increased over the past few months. Parents are wondering if their children are addicted to electronics and how they should manage the overuse they see. Dr. Turansky uses the arena of electronics to help you train your children to live within limits and accept no as an answer. Those two life skills will help them now and well into their future.
Although each session builds upon the previous one, you can watch just one if you’d like.
If you are a church leader, we want to invite you to use this Online Parenting Seminar to enhance your Parent Discipleship Ministry. This is a great way to provide training for the parents under your care. We have advertising graphics we can share with you, or you can just pass on our emails to your congregation. Those images are at the bottom of this page.
The church is where discipleship takes place. Parents want help. You can offer them biblical, practical solutions to every day challenges they face.
Here’s What You’ll Learn
Getting It All Done
Most of what we do in family life falls into the Getting Things Done Department. Getting up, getting ready for the day, dealing with meals, laundry, and chores, completing schoolwork and homework, and getting along with others are just a few of the items in this category. In these areas children learn responsibility, cooperation, and how to see what needs to be done and do it without being asked. They learn character such as diligence, obligation, perseverance, thoroughness, responsiveness to authority, and the ability to give up their agenda even if they don’t feel like it. The way parents guide their children in this area either escalates conflict or reduces tension. Learn to get it all done and do it with life-skills in mind in this first session.
Every child and young person must learn to manage the three categories of emotions: Anger, Sadness, and Anxiety. Unfortunately, some children use those emotions to control situations they don’t like. Parents can use several heart-based tools to help children manage these emotions with an eye on skill-development that will help these children both now and in the future. Emotions can create quite a stir in one’s heart and wreak havoc in a family. Learn practical ways to help children deal with their emotions in this powerful session. AND, learn to equip children with a plan to get back on track when they are off track.
How much is too much screen time? How can you tell when your child is crossing the line toward addiction? How can you as a parent manage the electronics AND the demandingness or anger a child exhibits when you try? Of course, not all children are the same, further complicating the application of the truths. These and many other questions about electronics will be addressed in this very important session.
Furthermore, this area of life provides you as a parent to train your child to live within limits and accept no as an answer. Those two life skills will help them now and in their future.
We’d love to have you join us for this practical, biblical seminar. You’ll go away energized with a vision to help your child in ways you never thought possible.
