Parenting is a Challenging Task“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” -Elizabeth Stone
Parenting a child or adolescent is a challenging task, even on our best days.
When things aren’t going well, the pressure to respond lovingly and appropriately seems to increase. We have stereotypes that adolescence is the time of wild and rebellious teens; or of “the terrible twos” as a period when children just naturally get out of control. What do you do? Where do you find support? Is what you’re experiencing normal? What do I need to change?
At HeartLife our passion is to help you. As our culture continues to spiral downward, children are offered more and more freedom without the maturity to make healthy decisions. How do we protect them?“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” -Proverbs 22:6
We need to examine ourselves as well.
Our attitudes and actions can often make things worse (see Ephesians 6:4). Our counselors will help you look at changes in yourself and your family system to better address the developmental, spiritual and emotional needs of your child and family.
We always strive to address core issues that affect your family system. Creative biblical and practical solutions help you transform problems into opportunities for growth.
