Speed Parenting – Group Discussion Class

Sacred Families, Developing the Family According to God's Design This is lesson number 11, entitled, Speed Parenting

And this is a small group exercise My mother's family had ten children, seven girls and three boys When I was a kid there was a time when I was about twelve years old that within five blocks of my house I had seven aunts and uncles I had my grandmother and 14 cousins living within a five-block radius of where I lived My mother would get together with my aunts and my grandmother for tea and they would talk, usually about each other's kids

Families lived closer then And child-raising was more of a community endeavor The neighbor lady, for example, or the guy at the candy store, knew who you were and he'd tell your parents if you were out of line They wouldn't be shy to do that At school, the school, nearer, very much the morality and the values that were being taught to us in our home, and that's not necessarily true today in many cases

Today, families are far apart, children are programmed for activities, and parents don't always have the close-knit support and advice of peers in the business of raising their children So in this particular session, I want you to take time to share your experience and wisdom with one another in addressing the issues and the questions and the problems faced by most parents raising children Obviously, if you're alone, you can use this session when you get together with other parents to have a small group discussion I think it would be helpful if you are a church group doing this I'm going to give you some instructions on how to put together this speed parenting small group discussion

Hopefully this speed parenting session will yield some helpful strategies and personal experiences that will benefit others in your group So here's how it works, if you want to try this First of all, break into small groups, each of them sitting at separate tables And within each small group, try to appoint a secretary or a spokesman who will take some notes and who will be able to give feedback to the larger group when the exercise is over Secondly, review the questions that are listed at the link on the screen

And we'll show that link a little bit later on And I want you to take the time to answer and discuss as many of the questions on the link as possible in the time limit Now, there are many, many, many questions I mean, you'd have to spend days together to get through all of them So just pick three or four, as many as you can do in the amount of time that your group has set as a limit

And I might mention that all the questions on the link are all questions that have been submitted by parents who attended a Sacred Families seminar As you're discussing, once you've come to a conclusion about the question, because all the questions have to do this with a child and what do you do when your child does this Well, discuss that among yourselves and when you come to a consensus answer, have the secretary, kind of, write down a summary of what that answer is to that question The idea is, you're going to be discussing for maybe 30 or 45 minutes You might be able to answer successfully three or four or five of those questions

Once you are done, then each group feed back to the main group some of the answers that you've come up with to the questions that were on the list So I hope this speed parenting exercise really will yield some great answers and some good discussion among you as parents For now, I want to thank you for viewing the material and using BibleTalktv for this If the material has been a blessing to you, we only ask that you pass it on
