Daystar Ministry counselors will present a free parent workshop, “Modern Parents, Vintage Values” at Brentwood Academy on Wednesday, April 3 in the middle school from 7-9 p.m.
Free and open to the public, the seminar will help parents see how they can bring vintage values back into a modern world.
Daystar counselors Sissy Goff, David Thomas, and Melissa Trevathan, who co-authored the book by the same title, will lead the workshop on April 3. Daystar Counseling Ministries, located in Nashville, offers counseling to kids and families in the Middle Tennessee area. Daystar offers both individual and group counseling for children, adolescents, families, and young adults.
According to the authors’ description, “Modern Parents, Vintage Values” is designed to help parents who have ever heard comments from their children like: “You’re the only parents who ____;” “No one else has to do chores at their house;” “It was an accident. I didn’t mean to hurt my brother;” and “I don’t have any friends.”
“If you’re trying to figure out how to teach your 14-year-old daughter how to be grateful or your 10-year-old son to respect you, then this class is for you,” Trevathan says. “We will talk specifically about how to deal with issues that are more rampant and concerning than ever before: disrespect, entitlement, and the oceans of emotions that seem to be swirling around the culture and the kids we love. We’ll also look practically at how to teach your children values like confidence, forgiveness, and responsibility.”
