Raised to Love

by | Sep 12, 2016 | Family Life, Parenting

When parents of a newborn baby set out on the big scary adventure of tackling the myriad of challenges in caring for their baby, there’s no shortage of advice from family and friends to help them on their way.

But what about later, when it’s the really important stuff that parents need help with – like building character and teaching virtue? Well how about raisedtolove.com?

It’s a website specialising in Parenting Snapshots; one-minute videos and handy hints on a particular topic. They make a big thing (like teaching resilience) seem less scary by transforming it into something achievable through practical pointers.

The videos are great because they are simple:  showing an everyday couple talking about the way they teach a particular lesson to their children. That alone is wonderful – it reinforces the (sometimes forgotten) fact that bringing up children works so much better, and successfully, when both parents are on the same page. That said, after spending ten days of the holidays looking after my own single-handedly, I now view the courage and endurance of lone parents in a fresh perspective.

Do check out the site and the videos as they also bring the lessons to life instead of making it seem like a nice idea in theory, but impossible in reality.

Finally, a reminder of two Smart Loving Breakthrough workshops coming up this autumn (for those of you who live in England).
The workshops will be delivered in Welwyn Garden City at Our Lady Queen of Apostles Church on 24th September and in Brook Green Holy Trinity Church on the 15th October.
