You Never Stop Being A Parent
“Our goal in training and discipling our children is to bring them to maturity … [that they might be] ready for adulthood long before it is time to release them from the home.”
“Somehow, we thought that when our children reached eighteen, our parenting would be pretty much over. On the contrary, we discovered that our most challenging years as parents were in the vicinity of ages eighteen to twenty-three. … When the children were small, parenting was simple – not easy but simple.”
For some, this is a pressing topic as you consider your relationship with your adult children; for others, parenting is still an everyday reality. And for still others who may not have children of their own, it may mean asking questions like, what is my role to the children within my church family? So, whether you are still parenting within your home, have children who are about to leave home, or parenting at a distance, there is something here to learn for anyone. Based on “You Never Stop Being a Parent (Thriving in Relationship with Your Adult Children” by Jim Newheiser and Elyse Fitzpatrick, plus facilitated discussion.
