Parents' Night Out
Saturday, October 21, 5:00-8:30 p.m.
For infants - grade 5. Childcare will be provided by FBCX childcare staff. Bring a supper for your child. Free of charge, but pre-registration is required (deadline is Wednesday, October 18).
Shaun Kell, marriage and family therapist, will be leading an optional and brief marriage enrichment session at the beginning of Parents’ Night Out: "In his book, 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work, groundbreaking researcher John Gottman lists the 7 characteristics that happy couples share. As an optional exercise for Parent’s Night Out, I’ll present (in 10 minutes or less, I PROMISE) the first of these 7 Principles, what Gottman calls 'Love Maps.' Essentially, a love map is knowing what is going on in our partner’s inner world. It’s a domain we often ignore in the daily press of getting things done and going to work, but we need to take time to update our love maps. I’ll provide a handout to help you get started.” Meet with Shaun at 5:15 in the Pilgrims classroom to be a part and get your handout to discuss on your date night.
