This class begins by looking at the Biblical view and purpose of marriage, the family, and relationships in general, and how it compares to the way our culture views marriage and family. It examines what makes relationships healthy and unhealthy. It then looks at the different personality types and family backgrounds of people and how these can affect relationships. The class then equips the student with tools for healthy communication and conflict resolution. The class ends with a discussion of child development and the role of the parent in raising children. This class will provide the necessary worldview and tools to equip one—whether married or single—to have healthy relationships with family and friends.
