The parent-child relationship defines the relationship between God and human beings. When people become parents and experience intense unconditional love for their children, they get a taste of God’s heart towards humanity. God feels tremendous joy when his children grow to resemble His character, just as a parent feels great pride and joy as their child grows and matures. It is the desire of every parent that their children grow up to become respectable citizens that are able to contribute to society, and create a loving family of their own. FPA conducts regular meetings on parenting as well as organizes Family Workshops for more in-depth education.
Young parents’ meetings are held monthly for parents with infants or toddlers. Discussion is based off of books written by experts on parenting and marriage relationships.
