Hold On To Your Kids Facilitated Book Group
Hold On to Your Kids is a game-changing book. It outlines the ways our family culture has gone awry in and what we can do to "right the ship," so that we can support the full development of our children (and ourselves, in the process!).
In this course we will meet online for three classes using Zoom technology (super easy app for online classes & meetings).
We'll also have a facebook page for class participants where we can discuss ideas, share stories and ask questions that arise from the material in the book.
Class meetings will be on Mondays: June 5th, June 12th and June 19th from 6-7pm PST.
It is in their relationship with us that our children will reach their developmental destiny of becoming independent, self-motivated, and mature beings valuing their own self-worth and mindful of the feelings, rights and human dignity of others. - Hold On to Your Kids
The culture in which we are rearing our children [has changed]. Children’s attachments to parents are no longer getting the support required from culture and society. Even parent-child relationships that at the beginning are powerful and fully nurturing can become undermined as our children move out into a world that no longer appreciates or reinforces the attachment bond. Children are increasingly forming attachments that compete with their parents, with the result that the proper context for parenting is less and less available to us. It is not a lack of love or of parenting know-how but the erosion of the attachment context that makes our parenting ineffective. - Hold On to Your Kids
- Classes will feature both teaching time (like your good old fashioned "lecture) and time for discussion and Q and A.
- Zoom is very easy-to-use (even if you're a technophobe like me!). Just download the app ahead of time and you should be good to go. Our class "Zoom Room" information will be emailed to you upon enrollment.
- Need to miss a class (or two)? No problem! Classes will be recorded and I'll email out recordings withing 24 hours of each class. If you have a burning question you want to discuss, but aren't able to attend that class, just let me know ahead of time and I'll address it in class.
- This book is perfectly suited for parents of children ages 5-18.
