"What's the secret to a joyful family?" It's really no secret, simply thing about what it takes to cook your favorite dish. Too much of one ingredient can overpower and ultimately ruin it. Too little of another can leave the dish flavorless and unfulfilling. But when you get the right balance of ingredients and you know when to use them, the result is a delicious and satisfying meal. When it comes to creating joyful families, each family will have its own recipe and distinct flavor. However, the one key ingredient that is absolutely essential to a joyful family is love. Love is where joy comes from. It's where caring, respect and even responsibility come from. When you learn to infuse love into everything you do, including discipline, you'll be cooking up the family of your dreams. "The Joy of Parenting" will give you tools on how to do just that. Taught by founder/author Susie Walton. The cost is $225 per person, $350 per couple, $150 for RCB grads.
