Calvary Chapel parenting seminar
Calvary Chapel Sequim, 91 S. Boyce Road, will host a parenting seminar called "Cooperation, Consequences and Keeping Your Sanity" from 8:45 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20.
Jon Sanné, children's pastor at Calvary Chapel Olympia, will show parents practical solutions for long-term changes in themselves and their children ages 2-18. He offers seven categories of consequences, providing parents with tools to be effective.
Similar programming for children is offered to reinforce the adult program. Teens are invited to sit in with their parents. Take-home manuals are available along with follow-up materials and videos from the National Center for Biblical Parenting, designers of the seminar.
Cost is $20 per adult or $30 for a family with lunch and nursery care provided.
