As your children continue to mature and grow at Saint Patrick School, now is the time for you as parents to prepare for the next phase. Especially if your child is in the 5th thru 8th grade, you should be preparing to guide your child through the teen years. One of the biggest challenges Jan and I have struggle with is how to talk to our kids about the things that really matter (you know, like relationships, sex, drugs, their walk with Jesus...). Before your child enters high school is the time to begin planning how to communicate with your teen. If you wait to plan until your child is in ninth grade you may be in for a real shock.
The One Conversation Model is a short three video series to help prepare parents for the teen years. Please consider spending some time watching this video series with your spouse. The three videos walk you through what I believe is the BEST approach to having life-changing conversations with your teen.
Throughout this series, One Conversation is going to share with you how to:

Prepare yourself for the big, daunting conversations of parenting
Get to the deepest level of conversations that changes lives
Tap into the trends, teachers, topics, and themes your teen already knows or thinks they know so you can connect on a deeper
The video series comes with some downloadable worksheets to help you get the most out of viewing, and best of all, it is free. The only cost to you is your time.
