Family and Parent Resources

These resources help parents as they engage the question: “What does it mean to be a family of Integrity?” In addition to families using them at home, you might also use them to engage parents collectively, for instance in a Parent Circle that meets on Sunday afternoon or mid-week. And don’t forget to check out Soul Matters family guide called Soulful Home. It helps your families weave the monthly theme into their home life. Learn more about it HERE.

“Families can talk about how Mary Poppins gets her messages across. What’s easier to hear, a command or a song? How does Poppins get respect from others?

Why is it important to spend time together? What happens if people get too busy sometimes to “go fly a kite”?

How does Mary Poppins teach and demonstrate … integrity? ” – Common Sense Media
