Parenting today is viewed as a nightmare by many parents and guardians. Some of them appear helpless in the face of the growing challenges posed by the media, changing global moral values, worsening influence on children from schools, the information overload, conflicting messages, declining cultural values, economic hardships etc. This course equips the participants with appropriate parenting skills and provides guidelines on how to succeed in parenting in the middle of today’s overwhelming challenges. It also provides up to date information on best practices that will not only enhance their parenting practices, but will help them discover who they are, equip them to deal with their “baggage from the past” and make them better all round people in general.
True Love Waits [TLW] is a project of Family Life Network [FLN] that promotes abstinence to teenagers and college students since April, 2004. This program is run in universities, secondary and primary schools and places of worship where clubs are formed. The idea behind this program is to help the youth to realize that the choice they have made to abstain is one of the most important and wisest decisions that a youth could ever make. It also enables the youth to cherish and value their sexuality as the most precious thing next to their very lives. Having understood that, the youth are encouraged to hold each other accountable through positive peer pressure and to support one another as they journey through abstinence heading towards success, future happiness in marriage and a bright future.
