Parenting: How It Changes As Our Kids Get Older Workshop

October 8 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Being consistent is important, but parenting is hard work and it’s so daily! How should we discipline our preschool age children or our 6-year-old? What about our 6th grader or Jr. High student? Or even our high school age kids? Should technology be used as a reward, or as a punishment?

Come hear what Lauran Thomas has to say about how parenting changes as our kids get older, and why we need to tailor our parenting techniques to fit the uniqueness of each individual child. We’ll explore how life as a parent changes through the stages our child experiences, and how we need to relate differently to our kids, as they go through these ages and stages on their way to becoming responsible adults.
