Christ Church Easton Welcomes All to a Parenting Seminar Wednesday, May 2
By Terri Jennings
Christ Church in Easton will host a parenting seminar entitled “How to Raise Helpful Kids: 5 Simple Shifts That Inspire Giving” presented by licensed family therapist and parenting coach Jeanne Rollins on Wednesday, May 2, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. Rollins will present a motivational talk on why and how to ask more of our children —pre-school age through young adult.
Sharing family/group responsibilities and encouraging involvement from an early age teaches youth that it pays to deliver and begin a life-long habit of giving. Rollins will recommend, and provide examples of, simple shifts in thinking and communicating that can make a big difference in how children perceive themselves as capable contributors. According to Rollins, “It’s never too late to raise the bar, and if necessary change the rules, to motivate each family member to consistently contribute.” Attendees will leave this seminar with invaluable ideas to enable responsible behavior in their children, ways to help them discover personal gifts and talents, and how to set boundaries between parent and child.
Christ Church is offering this unique talk as an outreach service to community families.
“I remember being told as a youth that service is the rent we pay on life. It’s an idea that stuck with me, and as a parent I am always looking for ways to help my children contribute to the family and world, and in the process strengthen their compassion and self-esteem,” said Christ Church’s Reverend Ellen Huber. This talk is a continuation of an earlier Rollins seminar at Christ Church in February. “But don’t worry if you missed the first one, this is new information and isn’t dependent on the first talk,” assured Reverend Huber. Refreshments will be served and there is a suggested donation fee of $10.00.
