Family Foundations--(2017-2018)

Family Foundations is a new, unique scholar project developed specifically for adults to learn together the principles of Leadership Education, identify the needs of each child in your family and inspire you to meet those needs, and to grow in knowledge and skills that will bless us in our families and other relationships. We will learn similarly to the youth scholar classes through inspiring lectures, simulations, and activities, reading and discussing classics for each topic, and oral exams and writing. This is our chance to understand what our scholars are experiencing and to experience a scholar class ourselves! We will become both better parent mentors and school mentors.
We will meet twice a month (September – May) for about 1 ½ hours each time. Our topics will include:
*Leadership Education and the Liber Cycle
*Personal missions and seasons in life
*Abilities and Skills
*Knowledge and the Inteligro Method of solving problems
*Improving relationships
*Culture & Worldviews
*(We can also add a class on systems if that is needed.)
Connection changes our nature, so please come connect with us and watch:
*Your relationship with your children flourish
*Your relationship with your spouse deepen
*Your relationship with books, classics, and ideas blossom
*Your relationship with others grow.
