FOR PARENTS / GRANDPARENTS
Are you concerned that your child’s faith and values will be negatively impacted in a public school? You are not alone.
Keeping Their Faith in Public Schools is a seminar for parents (and grandparents) to help navigate public schools. You’ll discover:
A powerful way to teach your children discernment in class
More than ever before, Christian parents need to know how to help their children discern “politically correct” opinions and subtle bias that may run counter to your family’s faith and values.
How to address a concern with a teacher in a gracious way
There will be times when you need to talk to a teacher about a topic or activity in class that you feel is questionable. You will learn the five criteria for evaluating your concerns and a successful way to approach the teacher.
Students’ religious liberties in class
You’ll learn the six religious liberties the U.S. Department of Education says your children have at school and how to protect and promote them in a relational way.
How to teach your children a biblical definition of tolerance so they hold fast to their moral values and convictions
Unfortunately, many people misuse the word “tolerance” resulting in students feeling unable to defend their biblically-based moral convictions. You’ll discover a biblical approach to tolerance that will give your children confidence to stand strong while also expressing kindness and respect.
