Our newest online course, Theology of Parenting (CC410), is designed for Christian parents, grandparents, children’s ministry staff and everyone who wants to positively impact this emerging generation.
Parenting today is not the same as parenting even 10 or 20 years ago in America. "A Theology of Parenting" looks at the major trends impacting parents, families and children.
A lesson specifically on technology examines how to be a technologically responsible parent from a Christian perspective while living in a media-driven world.
Taught by CLSTG faculty member Dr. Lon Flippo, you will learn about a broad range of topics including: parenting skills, stages of child development, understanding temperament, communication, the dynamics of discipline, instilling self-esteem, how to be a technologically responsible parent, and much more.
After completion of this course, students:
- Will better understand temperament, intellectual development and how children learn, grow emotionally and mature physically.
- Will gain knowledge on the subjects of family communication, discipline, development of self-esteem, teaching children values, meeting their needs, being a good role model, teaching responsibility and service.
- Will develop and write a family mission statement and apply it to individual family units.
Many parents are paralyzed by fear, a sense of guilt, failure or insane parenting techniques that don’t work. We will examine Biblical perspectives and help inspire parents to fight the good fight in a society that is tempting every Christian child to test the ways of the “world.”
