Parenting:

Most people learn how to parent from their parents.  They either do what their parents did or they do the opposite.  Unfortunately none of us had perfect parents. Our Heavenly Father is the only one who can claim that distinction.

At Ashes to Beauty we have an opportunity to spend at least two years with the students and their children.  We can both model and coach biblical principles that apply to all relationships, including those with our children. We treat one another the way we want to be treated–with respect, dignity, kindness, patience, and love.  We do not allow corporal punishment at the center.  We teach consistency, consequences of decision making, and increasing responsibility with increasing age.

Because we live in a close environment we have put limits on ages of children that we allow to live at the center.  We will accept girls 12 and under and boys 7 and under.  This does not preclude older children visiting.

We also access community resources for parenting classes and counseling.
