This is for you, if you want to:
In a fast paced world, our teenagers are growing so much quicker than we care to admit.
Whether you have a great relationship with your teenager or a rough one, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with some teen issues on a regular basis; some you’re simply unprepared for.
This mother-teenager retreat can help empower you with tools and answers to work with moving forward. And give you and your teenager some precious alone time to connect in a special and memorable way.
Heart To Heart :
A lot of mothers have a hard time talking to their children about several topics especially areas of sexual relationships, self awareness, responsibility, Self-esteem: these are Serious Teen Issues, that requires addressing.
Self-worth is one of the most important conversation a parent should have with their teenager.
Most teens receive many negative messages about their worth on a daily basis. Peer pressure rides on the back of bullying in most schools. They are bombarded by images of perfect models all over media. They might be struggling with plans for college, career or godly life choices. It could be difficult for your teen to talk to you about these things at home, which is why the intentional environment of a retreat could benefit you.
Get Away Weekend: Breaking Routine for Alone time to Break Through
Have you ever noticed that you think differently when on vacation? Something about breaking out of your everyday routines paves the way for a great deal of introspection. A retreat might just be able to do the same thing for your teenager. Escaping from the everyday stresses, even temporarily, opens up a world of opportunity.
You and your teen will be able to talk freely without worrying about all the things that normally weigh on your minds. It’s time to grow and refresh your mother-teen relationship through faith or tackling life goals, or, you’re simply viewing it as a way to set aside time to relax and talk, it will benefit you both. You will be able apply what you learn at home.
Parenting is not something any of us qualified for to be one, we simply learn on the job and apply wisdom as often as required.
Do you have spiritually gifted teenager and not sure how to help him / her discover and manage his / her gift?
Some children have obvious calling on their lives; and some are spiritually gifted, but a lot of parents don’t know, and are not equipped to discern what their teenager is called to do. Or how to help them get on the right path.
Helping your child channel their energy in their areas of calling might just be what you need to get them aligned with God’s plan & purpose. This weekend will help you discover the depth of your role as “mum”; spiritual mentor / guide to your teenager. And the importance of your prayers & faith to his / her spiritual development.
