THIS MONTH'S TOPIC - WHEN YOU'RE FRUSTRATED WITH YOUR CHILD
"Parenting is hard no matter how well-behaved or easy your kids are. And there are times when you want to throw in the towel, lock yourself in the bathroom, or go to the mall or golf course and pretend you don't even know those little stinkers exist. But it never takes long for those feelings to go away does it? Especially when you hear, 'Mommy, I just love you so much.' Or 'Daddy, I need you to kiss me goodnight.'
Most of the time our frustration as parents stems from our lack of trust in ourselves-we don't think we're getting things right or are afraid our preschooler's meltdown is a sign that we're failing as parents. Not true! Preschoolers are a unique and wonderful species all their own. So relax, take a deep breath and keep on praying"

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 Passages. Here's a description of the associated documents.
