DOUBLE HELIX: PARENT & CHILD PROGRAM
Break The Ice: Play an icebreaker, get to know each other, or get some laughter going
Prepare testimonies from the child and parent perspective about overcoming difficult situations in the parent child relationship
What is a current challenge my parents/my children and I are facing?
What is blocking us from overcoming this difficulty?
Listen to the other party share without interrupting
Repeat back what was just shared, “So what I’m hearing is….”
Confirm you heard correctly and allow for further clarification
Make a plan to move forward together
Do Together: Make a craft together that symbolizes the family
Do a version of the painting at the top, but turn it into a 4 Position Foundation (Parents would love it!)
End with a Bang:
Share 3 Great Things about my Parents/Children with the group
Share Best Practices: What is something we do that allows us to create a home we love?
Have a Soul Train to the song “We are family”
