Joy of Parenting
“What’s the secret to a joyful family?”  It’s really no secret, simply think about what it takes to cook your favorite dish.  Too much of one ingredient can overpower and ultimately ruin it.  Too little of another can leave the dish flavorless and unfulfilling.  But when you get the right balance of ingredients and you know when to use them, the result is a delicious, satisfying meal.  When it comes to creating joyful families, each family will have its own recipe and distinct flavor.  However, the one key ingredient that is absolutely essential to a joyful family is love.  Love is where joy comes from.  It’s where caring, respect and event responsibility come from.  When you learn to infuse love into everything you do, including discipline, you’ll be cooking up the family of your dreams.  Call Indigo Village at 760-633-3754 to register.  The cost is $200/Parent Connection member, $225/nonmember.
