“Good Enough Parenting” combines insights from the Scriptures, credible research, and the Louis’ experiences as counsellors and parents, with the wisdom of eight elders and their families to provide an inspirational, thorough, practical and well-reasoned guide for parents. This program introduces the Four Plus One Core Emotional Needs and explains why meeting them is absolutely crucial for raising emotionally healthy and spiritually minded children. Participants will also learn how to avoid “Exasperation Interactions” and the “Vortex of Conflict Escalation”, as well as how to “Repair and Reconnect” with teenagers and adult children.
Research has shown that when core emotional needs are not met during the formative years of a child, “Lifetraps” (schemas) will develop. These core emotional needs are:
- Connection & Acceptance
- Healthy Autonomy & Performance
- Reasonable Limits
- Realistic Expectations
- and the “plus-one” need for Spiritual Values & Community
While no one’s parenting can ever be perfect, “Good Enough Parenting” offers a step-by-step guide on how parents can learn to meet these core emotional needs, and providing parenting that is “good enough” to prevent Lifetraps from developing in their children. “Good Enough Parenting,” a Christian parenting series, developed by John and Karen Louis and is based on Schema Therapy founded by Dr Jeffrey Young. This programme also make use of movie clips to illustrate principles and points in the movie.
