What: All of us parents want to parent our children well. But what exactly do kids need? Depending on what book you read (or what internet blog) parents can be bombarded with theories about the basic needs of children.
Dr. John L. Cox, clinical psychologist from Jackson, brings us a simple straightforward model for understanding our children’s needs, what they need in order to grow up happy and healthy. And we’ll also look at what do we do when we drop the ball! Dr. Cox will provide us with practical, “hands on” advice for dealing with disciplining kids, effectively communicating with them and helping them when they struggle. And there’ll be plenty of time for questions. So join us for an evening of understanding what your kids need, learning how you can richly give to them, and tips on how to survive the process!
