Event description

Description

Confident Kids is a Christian support group program that offers help for hurting kids in four distinct areas:

Facing My Feelings

"All My Feelings Are OK." Children learn how to name their feelings, how to express them in healthy and appropriate ways, how to recognize and lower feelings defenses, and how to use their feelings to know when it's time to ask for help. They are also introduced to King David, who shares how he used music and poetry to express all the many feelings he experienced throughout the events of his life.

Living in My Family

"There Are No Perfect Families." Children are encouraged to see their family, whoever that may include, as their primary place of belonging and support. They also learn and practice a variety of family living skills. Hearing from Adam and Eve assures group participants that God's plan from the beginning has been for people to live in families, but that from the beginning of time, families have had to face and overcome a plethora of problems!

Growing Through Changes

"Nothing Stays the Same Forever." Children learn to deal with the significant changes in their lives by grieving the losses that occur when things changes. They learn to identify and manage the six stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance and Hope. Biblical accounts of Joseph, who dealt with many changes throughout his lifetime, encourage children to trust in God's plan for their lives even through the most difficult and confusing times of change.

Making Wise Choices

"I Always, Always Have Choices." Children learn the difference between wise and unwise choices, a six step process for making wise choices, and how to find wise adults when they need to ask for help. Visits from Queen Esther and Mordecai show children how to follow God's directions, even through the most difficult of choice making situations.

The Confident Kids program runs 13weeks and begins on Monday, January 6, 2020. Meetings will begin at 6:30pm and end promptly at 8:30pm. We will not be meeting on February 17, 2020, in honor of President's Day.

Feel free to join us at any point in the 13 weeks, each lesson is an individual unit so your child will not be behind.

If you have further questions, please leave a message at 651.558.2610, and one of our FamilyCare volunteers will return your call.

Childcare for ages 4 and under is available to parents participating in another class.
