Raising Children to Thrive as Adults: New Class for Parents

Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m.-7:20 p.m. Starting October 17, 2018

Each generation of parents raises their children in the cultural climate of their time. The current climate combines the highest expectations for a successful life with the highest fears for safety and well being. To help navigate this stressful journey Christ the King parents with children and youth of all ages are bonding together.

A new reading group will study Julie Lythcott Haims’ book How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and  Prepare Your Kids for Success. The author explores how current parenting is not necessarily producing fully functioning, independent young adults. She offers analysis and ideas for building self-sufficiency in our kids. The book is relevant to parents of toddlers as well as twenty-somethings.

The conversations will be led by Lucky Sahualla with an eye to practical application for each week between the meetings.
