THIS MONTH'S TOPIC -WALKING YOUR CHILD THROUGH FEAR


"We all want our children to live life fully. One of the joys of childhood is the innocence that allows them to live with reckless abandon. As our children get a little older they begin to see the "real world." Accompanying that can be some real fears that take hold in their lives.


How do we as parents help them confront fears, deal with them, and move past them so that they don't control our child's mind? Take a look at this video to see an overview of helping your child deal with fear."

Each Rite of Passage provides two videos for you as a parent to watch. The first video is the "why" video. It explains why you should walk through the Rite of Passage. The other video is the "how to" video providing you with a step-by-step guide in how to set up these Rites of Passage. Here's a description of the associated documents:

  • The Kickstarter is the biblical background for each Rite of Passage
  • The Parent Guide is an extension of the "how to" video
  • The Developmental Guide helps you know what's going on physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually with your child
