Creating and Maintaining Family Traditions

(Monday, April 30, 2018, 6:30pm)

Building a strong family takes time and effort.  Strong families are unified through deep emotional connections with each other, a sense of belonging in the family system, and healthy relationships between members. The purpose of this lesson is to reinforce the importance of family traditions, emphasize habits to preserve and respect traditions, and provide practical ways to establish new traditions. 

* The evening lesson will only be held if at least six people pre-register.
