THIS MONTH'S TOPIC - TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
"This month, our Online Parenting Class is on the topic of The Best Thing You Can Do for Your Child, and addresses the importance of self-care.
The topic of this lesson is especially important because if you aren't taking great care of yourself, you can't take great care of your kids. Taking care of yourself is not only good for you and your kids, it's something God commands us to do because our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit: Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. ~1 Corinthians 6:19-20"

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.
- 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
