This is the first article in a three part series on helping our children grow in wisdom, stature and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

I recently read an article about how artificial intelligence will transform so many things that the entire way schools teach children must change. The article argued that most of what is done in the workplace will soon be done by machines and robots. If artificial intelligence can provide most of the knowledge and skills traditionally taught in schools, the author suggests, the most important thing we can teach is character. Skills and information might become irrelevant, but character is essential to navigating every part of history—even the years ahead of us.

At PDS, our desire is to partner with you in developing your sons. In order to best serve you this year through Strategic Parenting events and our Strategic Parenting blogs, we're asking for your input on the topics that would be most beneficial to you and your family. We will have 3-4 events over the year and publish 2-3 blogs a month and want each topic covered to be relevant and helpful as you love and serve your family.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this form! Your input is invaluable.

This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with their dad or favorite guy. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1–6) and their dad or favorite guy.

The format will be as follows:

  • Start at 7:15 in the fellowship hall and enjoy Chick-Fil-A breakfast around the tables, sitting with boys and men from your son’s grade as much as possible.
  • Hear what the virtue means from a 6th grade boy
  • Learn the virtue in more detail through a 7 minute lesson from one of our leaders
  • Spend the majority of the time working around the table with your boys with age appropriate questions and activities.
  • End by 7:55

The boys will be dismissed to chapel from the breakfast. Dads and favorite guys are welcome to join us for chapel from 8:00–8:30 in the sanctuary or depart after breakfast.

Register for The True Friend Breakfast - Friday, Sept. 6

Dates for the year:

  • Sept 6 - True Friend
  • Oct 18 - Humble Hero
  • Nov 1 - Servant Leader
  • Jan 10 - Pacesetter
  • February 7 - Bold Adventurer
  • March 20 - Noble Knight
  • April 3 - Faithful Follower

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have a male adult host in order to attend. It is okay for one dad to bring more than just his son(s). A dad, grandad, or family friend can host multiple boys including friends. If a dad/favorite guy is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter him as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. Be careful not to sign him up for breakfast more than once. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son or we can discuss another option.

We look forward to seeing you September 6th.

Howard
