David Thomas and Sissy Goff to present “Raising Boys and Girls”
David helps you understand and explore the hearts, minds and ways of boys and the vital role we play on the journey from boy to manhood. Sissy dives into the heart of girls to help adults understand the different stages of development for girls: what is normal, what is not, and how to relate effectively. Melissa speaks to the heart of the adults in the life of the child - how each stage will bring up your own hopes, your own fears, even your own childhood.
They will help you learn what it means to call out the unique identity of the kids you love. The class is filled with practical tips and suggestions. You will receive fresh insight and much-needed encouragement for the road of raising boys and girls. Raising Boys and Girls will free you to parent & lead with more life and love. Raising Boys and Girls is generally broken down into Raising Boys and Girls: Kids (covering birth - elementary) and Raising Boys and Girls: Teens (covering adolescence)

Navigating the Emotional World of Kids
According to the statistics, we are the most addicted, in-debt, depressed, obese population in U.S. history. We go to great lengths to avoid, deny, medicate or suppress emotions. This country is full of adults who never learned how to navigate their emotions in a constructive way. What would it look like to raise a generation of emotionally and spiritually healthy children?
This workshop will focus on understanding the emotional development of children. We’ll identify three important emotional milestones for kids to hit as they develop, and the ingredients for helping them reach them. We will explore the role of temperament in nurturing kids emotionally. Parents and educators will be introduced to practical ideas for furthering a child’s emotional development.
