Parenting

At Highland Park United Methodist Church we have course offerings to help you with every developmental stage of your child and for your whole family.

 

Spiritual Formation for Moms

Begin your week in community with other mothers! Each Monday morning we meet for fellowship and sharing in the joy that is motherhood. This class is open for anyone with children age birth to young elementary level. Come learn new tools to experience God as a mother. Topics of discussion are defined by the needs of the group and can include studying the Bible, relational topics (parenthood, marriage, etc.) or learning more about a practice of developing faith (prayer, journaling, etc.) This semester will be the book “Present over Perfect,” by Shauna Niequist. Shauna invites you to consider the landscape of your own life, and what it might look like to leave behind the pressure to be perfect and begin the life-changing practice of simply being present, in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life.

Love & Logic Parenting: Early Childhood (2-6 years)

It's never too early to use love and logic. It even works with the teeny tiny ones! Turn the terrible 2s into terrific 2s with easy to use steps. Great solutions to "I waaant it!" and "You can't make me!" and a favorite, the grocery store "gimmies." Hear how parents successfully model the behaviors they want to see. Build your child's self-esteem early in life. Get direct talk on potty training. This class offers parents an alternative way to communicate with their child.

HPUMC Moms (April 2017)

April Topic: Mindful

Are you living on purpose for a purpose with intention as a Mom? Do you feel clear on your mission for your family and your goals personally and as a family? Are you intentional about how to care for yourself so you can care for your family? Mindset and intentional living is sometimes the missing piece to grow and sustain a healthy family.

Join us on Tuesday, April 25th for lunch and a time of learning about how to create a mindset that will empower you and impact your family.
