The Boundaries of Love: "Five Keys to Well-Being at Home"
First United Methodist Church in Grapevine would like to invite you to a parenting seminar exploring how parents can maintain boundaries of love with their children. The seminar will be on Wednesday, November 16, at 6:15 PM in Room 2001 at FUMC Grapevine (422 Church Street in Grapevine). In this workshop we will explore how a better understanding of boundaries can transform intimate relationships and parenting. Utilizing insights about the emotional brain from current neuroscience, we will go beyond love and logic to discover the keys to relational intelligence, productive (rather than destructive) conflict and restorative approaches to discipline and accountability.
Our leader, Charles Gaby, has 25 years of experience as a counselor and speaker. He is past president of the Tomkins Institute and now serves as Training Director for the Institute for Restorative Communities which provides training for Grapevine ISD. The pilot program he initiated here in 2012 saw reductions in disciplinary referrals of 70-80% in the three schools that undertook the program.
A snack supper will be provided; a donation of $4 per person is suggested, but not required. Please RSVP to Patty Bandy, Director of Family Ministries, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-481-2559 x129.
