Parenting Resources


Parenting is quite challenging and without a Godly roadmap, parents can have difficulty understanding what is best for their child(ren).  LifeSpring Counseling Services has created a parenting program that includes 8 sessions to help parents better understand the stages of parenting as they guide their children into becoming responsible young adults.  The sessions focus on the following topics:


  1. Connecting and building trust
  2. Healthy touch
  3. Communication in the parent/child relationship
  4. Providing structure and setting limits
  5. Using playfulness in parenting
  6. Determining appropriate discipline throughout childhood
  7. Building character in the child
  8. Releasing to responsibility


These sessions are based on a diagram entitled “Building Blocks of Discipline” created by Dr. William and Martha Sears in their book Parent Project: Tools for Godly Parenting.  These sessions are facilitated by the Family Team at Julianna Poor Memorial Counseling Center.  For more information, visit and look under “Family Camps.”
