Speaker

THE MARRIAGE IMPRINT: Messages Children Learn From Their Parents’ Marriage

We teach our children to read, to ride bikes, to pick up their rooms and mind their manners.  However the most important learning they will do in our homes has to do with learning how to love!  We, as parents, are our children’s blueprint for intimacy.  Based on what our children see in our marriage relationship, they draw conclusions and form permanent beliefs and expectations about marriage.  “Is marriage good?  Is it what I want someday for me?  Will I have a good one?”

What is your marriage teaching your children about love?  What does it say about respect, cooperation and trust?  Is your marriage preparing your children to be successful in their own love story later in life? 

Join family advocate Rhonda Nordin as she steps through essential messages children learn from their parents’ marriage.  Based on recent research that shows children form opinions and expectations about marriage from a very early age, this session has the potential to not only influence how we parent, but how we as mothers and fathers, interact with each other.  From making marriage a priority, to building trust and negotiating differences, this session helps men and women improve their marriage and prepares them to lead their children into successful adult relationships.
