What I Wish My Parents Knew

Mile Hi Youth & Family Ministry Presents:

What I Wish My Parents Knew

Four-Part Event Series

Often as parents, you don’t know what you don’t know until you’re in the heart of a new experience with your child.

It can be a whole new parenting world, navigating gender identification, propelled anxiety, illegal and prescription drug usage, technology and social media, mental health, relationship orientations, and so much more.

Whether you are amid this experience right now, want to support someone with a challenge, or best of all, want to be prepared to understand what your own children might face, take advantage of the chance to learn new information, and hear first-hand experiences about what our panel wishes their parents knew.

This four-part event series is designed to educate parents during the times their children are growing up and how they might support each other. The byproduct of these teachings just might be stronger, more loving, healthier relationships and improved communication.
