Foundations of Family Leadership

New cohort starts Tuesday, September 21, 2021

An approach to raising the children in your life with resilience, respect, and responsibility

In this class, you will learn powerful alternatives to authoritarian and permissive parenting. In the process, you will grow more connected and have more fun with the children in your life. Learn skills that will enable you all to thrive with resilience and responsibility. Children raised with these skills are poised to make a positive difference in their communities and lead with respect for all.

Course includes:

  • Engaging activities and exercises to practice in the class and take home to share with the children in your life
  • Facilitated group conversation board
  • Instructors available by text and email between classes

Leave each 2-hour session with:

  • A new understanding of your parenting style and children’s behavior
  • Fresh ideas for how to lead your family in an encouraging and truly powerful way
  • Break the code to misbehavior and learn how to support a child’s growth in a positive direction
  • Create goals for your family and clear skills to be able to reach your goals
