Parent the Heart Program (家心行動) is an 8-week personalized parenting training guided by a parent coach in person, on the phone, or any online tools. (Due to COVID-19, all coaching sessions are held virtually via Zoom.)
Through this training program, parents learn about the heart-based, positive parenting techniques to build character in their child, including cooperation, responsibility, self-motivation, self-control, and managing emotions.
This program can be offered in English, Mandarin or Cantonese.
Parenting on a heart level takes time and effort in preplanning with a strategic emphasis on teaching, training, and building relationship. Parent the Heart Program (家心行動) helps parents work through practical ideas and instructions in an 8-week period. It helps parents achieve the following goals:
- Address heart issues and build relationship with their children
- Create strategies and action plans to develop their children’s character qualities
- Teach children to develop self-motivation and independent thinking
- Build a God-centered family that loves God and honors each other.
When parents implement the heart-based parenting approach, they find it refreshing, insightful, and hopeful because they see miracles happen in the lives of their families. In addition to God’s grace, here are reasons why this approach works to help kids change:
- It’s biblical.
- It’s practical, giving specific how-to solutions.
- It’s focused on the heart.
- It looks long-term.
Participating parents will meet with the parent coach once a week for an hour, or on an alternate week schedule. Both parents are encouraged to participate at the same time. Children are not participating in the sessions. We strongly recommend parents schedule a time when they are free to talk without the kids. Evening and Saturday schedules are available. Coaches will first schedule a pre-session to get some family information, and to provide more information about the coaching program.
We have three parenting coaches, Catherine Chan, Shirley Chan, and Deanna Lao. They have completed training with the National Center of Biblical Parenting and Positive Discipline. They speak fluent Chinese and English. Click this link to see their profile.
