In the past ten day’s I’ve taught this class three times.
I wrote it out on a Saturday afternoon and taught it the next morning at our South Campus. I felt the information was good, but it came off a little flat. I had just one discussion question for people to interact with. After the first class, I added four more discussion questions, one after each of the four “essential parenting skills.” I also added some personal stories to add a little humor and liven things up. The second class was phenomenally better. This is the one I recorded in the video below. The discussion time was fairly active, but not as much as I woudl have liked. I finally taught the class one last time a week later. There were 21 parents present and the energy in the room was amazing. I was much more comfortable with the material and I had to cut the discussions short to keep us on track. It was by far the best child dedication class I’ve ever experienced. I’m looking forward to doing it again.
