Cana II is a marriage preparation series for couples in which a) one or both have been married before, or b) one or both spouses will have a minor stepchild(ren). The Saturday session includes the Prepare/Enrich DVD communication/conflict series as well as marriage spirituality. Couples with no children, or adult children, may take the Saturday session only, or PREP as an alternative. Couples with stepchildren under age 18 should take the Saturday session and the Active Parenting for Stepfamilies video series, which teaches skills needed for healthy stepfamilies. The cost per couple is $125 for both the Saturday session and Active Parenting.
What couples found most valuable in our Cana II:
- Learning each other’s love language, and how to effectively resolve problems
- Enlightening and useful techniques for dealing with life issues
- Discussion about being a blended family/step-parent
Active Parenting for Stepfamilies- Parenting in a stepfamily requires a combination of traditional parenting skills and a specialized knowledge that shows how step-families are different. This video series is designed to help couples work together to build a successful step-family. Topics include dealing with differences, discipline issues, avoiding loyalty conflicts, establishing limits of time, space, authority, and money; dealing with power struggles, and creating a cycle of success. Active Parenting is designed for couples with stepchildren under age 18, and can be taken by any stepparents, or by couples preparing for remarriage in conjunction with a Cana II or PREP day. Active Parenting is included in the cost of Cana II or PREP ($125 per couple); or $50 when taken without Cana II or PREP. Call 216-334-2975 for details.
