Austria: Workshop on Education for Young Parents
By Orlande Schenk, FFWPU Austria
Last weekend from June 22 to 24 2018, many Young parents with their families gathered in the beautiful place of Seebenstein. We held a Workshop on the topic of education specially for younger children. Heidi Mayr who has 5 children on her own and who is a professional Family counselor was leading us through the seminar.
We could create a very good atmosphere where parents could receive guidance but also had the space to share openly about their own situation in the family. Just to name a few topics we shared, positive communication of parents and children, spiritual education of our children, how to solve fights among siblings and much more. We had support of a few younger 2nd Generations who kept the Kids busy, so parents were free to listen to the content.
Everyone was really grateful to get input on our daily lives and to connect as blessed families. it was beautiful to be back and Seebenstein to enjoy nature together as young families.
