This stage builds on the first stage, Parenting Young Children (0-5). Once children have been secured in God’s love and they have come to respect the authority of parents and others, a number of developmental tasks must be taught in the this stage. Most significantly is the spiritual development of children. It is at this time that they come to “the age of reason” and can personally express faith, appropriate God’s Spirit and cultivate their own relationship with God. In this stage children will also be taught how to assume vital responsibilities or disciplines that will enhance and strengthen them. Other important topics will include Discovering Your Child’s Unique Bent and Developing A Godly Self Esteem. We will tackle the important work of Guarding Their Environment from unwholesome influences at this tender age. Finally, because of the many challenges and pressures of contemporary society we will introduce age appropriate sex education.Purchase Parenting Older Children Stage
