Raising Confident Kids in a Confusing World

NB. This event is taking place twice: in Chippenham on 21st May, and in Bristol on 3rd July.

We all want our children to be confident of who they are and able to make good decisions for themselves, but they are hearing conflicting messages. They are told that they can define themselves by their achievements, popularity or how they feel, and that sexuality, morality and gender are just a question of personal choice. Too often, Christian parents feel nervous and intimidated talking to their children on the subjects of bodies, gender, sexuality and their sense of self.

This evening is to inspire parents and carers that they are God’s Plan A for showing their children the Bible’s better answers on these topics, which are neither surprising nor confusing to our creator God.

Ed will serve up an evening of Biblical truth and practical wisdom, presented with a side order of real-life stories and a generous sprinkling of humour. It is perfect for parents at every stage of family life, from birth through to the teenage years, as well as for grandparents, leaders and anyone else who wants to be part of the wonderful challenge of raising children to lead flourishing lives for Christ.

Guests will leave with

- Tools to help them talk to children about the issues that matter most to them and shape their decision-making and their behaviour.

- Greater clarity on how to tackle some cultural hot topics with children and young people.

- A renewed appreciation that a child’s heart is the control room for all of their decisions and a fresh desire to influence their heart for Christ.
