At Family Frameworks we believe that Strong Families start before Marriage. That is why we strive to have programs that reach everyone at each stage in their lives.
Healthy Choices Healthy Relationships Class:
In partnership with Whitfield, Murray, and Gordon County High Schools, we teach 9th graders how to make healthy choices in their lives and how to develop healthy relationships using The Dibble Institute’s Healthy Choices Healthy Relationships It is a seven-week program that focuses on relationships and influences in teenagers lives. Each lesson is very interactive with discussions, videos, and activities. Students learn about the differences between male and female brains and hormones, media, family, and friend influences, dating safety and abuse, bullying, respect, and decision making. Our focus is teaching students how to set goals and how the impact that every relationship they form affects these goals. This is done solely through trained volunteers in the community.
Fantasy VS Reality:
This is our newest program, born out of request by community programs and students for more in-depth discussions. Fantasy VS Reality is a class about grounding oneself by showing God’s ways are reality not fantasy through cultural Evidence. The classes are offered throughout the year and focus on different topics. Each class is five sessions focusing on evidence based research and cultural evidence to discuss the fantasy that society portrays versus the reality of God’s design and the true desires of our hearts
Children In Between:
Divorce happens and is sometimes necessary. Our goal is to educate parents about the effects divorce can have on the children and provide parents with the skills to interact with each other without placing their child in the middle of their divorce. We have been approved by the Whitfield County Court system to provide the required divorcing parents classes. Children in Between is an evidenced based program that has been proven to decrease the traumatic affects divorce has on children. Topics covered include; money issues, long distance parenting, quizzing children about the other parent, putting down the other parent, children carrying messages, and never married parents.
We support marriages in the community by pairing strong couples with those seeking premarital counseling and crisis assistance. Having a strong couple mentoring new or troubled couples creates a relationship of lifetime support. We work with local agencies and churches to identify and train strong couples in the community to walk alongside these couples. We are currently using Live the Life’s Start Smart
We believe that no matter what stage your relationship is in it’s important to DATE. Especially once you are married. When you are dating the best way to get to know someone is through your dates. A proven strategy to a successful marriage is to have regular date nights. VentureOut is an exclusive program that provide couples monthly discounts on the best events and restaurants in town.
