02/25/20 Week 4: In Session 4 of SFP 10-14, the parents learned about using consequences for misbehavior of their youth. They learned that it is important to stay calm and respectful when your child is misbehaving. They learned to use small penalties for small problems and to save big consequences for big problems.
The youth learned that everyone has rules and responsibilities, adults and young people as well. The youth also learned that things go better for them when they follow rules. One youth stated, “I have been faithful in doing my chores at home, and mom rewarded me on my Earning Points for Rewards chart by allowing me to stay over one of my friends’ house this weekend.”
The families came together at the end and identified their family values by constructing family shields. Each family stated that their family values highlighted who they are as a family and what they believe in as a whole. The families are really enjoying the program and they are implementing what they learn in their respective households.
