Important Parent Opportunity
Parenting a student, Middle or High School, is definitely not easy. There is a darker side to life as a student in today’s culture that threatens to eclipse even the happiest and healthiest parent-teen relationships.
Depression, self-harm and suicide is undeniably rampant in the world of our students.
They are surrounded by the voices of pain, hurt, confusion and self-loathing. And, more often than not, we don’t know how to respond to our own child’s inner wounds, hoping and praying that they do not develop in to outer ones.
Sometimes, we wrestle with what to do all alone – never reaching out to those around us who are available, qualified and willing to walk along side us as we parent our depressed and hurting student.
We’d like to help. In part two of our Parent Symposium series, we will walk into that darker world with the help of a trained professional. Bill Wheelhouse has a Masters from Regent University in Human Services Counseling, and has been involved in youth ministry for over 24 years. His many certifications include Member of the American Association of Christian Counselors since 2012, Certificate in Spiritual Care in Crisis Management from the International Critical Incident Foundation, Ministry Director Celebrate Recovery Cedarbrook Community Church, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Teen Factor and Crisis Chaplin for Montgomery County Emergency Preparedness Collation.
Plan to join us on Wednesday, January 28 at 7pm for a Symposium on A Darker Side. The event is totally free, a casual, conversational environment and there will be light refreshments.
We so value your partnership and look forward to sharing this special opportunity with you.
