The Biggest Job Parenting Workshop in MD

September 8, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Parenting Workshop to be held at Chevy Chase 4-H Center

Parents, educators, and professionals interested in learning ways to address the myriad challenges adults face in raising children and essential skills that can support and guide them in their efforts will have the opportunity when a parenting workshop called The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have is presented at the 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, MD on Saturday, September 8th, from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. The interactive workshop, praised for its high-energy, compelling, and often humorous approach, will focus on 10 Priorities of parenting excellence outlined in a book by the same name, The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have. (Scribner)

The workshop is focused on how to raise and teach children effectively. Its messages are straightforward: the way adults live their lives must be consistent with the way they raise and teach children; principles are the most powerful force in influencing children in a positive way; and parents need to focus on personal growth to allow their best parenting instincts to emerge. Participants learn specific ways to strengthen child-adult bonds and family relationships, to inspire children to fulfill their highest potential, and how focusing on attitude over aptitude, truth over harmony, and principles over rules can lead to success in efforts to positively influence children and teenagers.

Parenting is the biggest job we’ll ever have, It is hard; it is doable, and it is never too late to raise adults with strong character who can be leaders and make solid contributions to the world.
