About The Event

We welcome you to join us as we discuss the dynamics of parenting, engage by asking questions and to leave invigorated and inspired. 

This is a frank, honest, no-holds barred Parenting Talk at this Book Launch discussing the issues we need to talk about but rarely do, in an informative way.

Margaret Bankole, is a wife, Pastor, a Barrister, a mother of four children, and an author of two books. 

On the launch of this her second book, she will be assisted by a Panel of M.O.T.H.E.R.S who will address the following topics: 

Parenting & the dynamics of sibling differences

Handling the perception of favouritism

How do you handle fall out

Bringing the balance

We can say that 98% of our children are doing really well being successful members of society whilst the 2% which are regularly in the over sensationalised news and the subject of news headlines are not.

"Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before." - 1 Thessalonians 4:11 New Living Translation

Why this book, He came back..? 

It explores the impact of Serious Youth Crime on talented and gifted young people within the same family.

A natural tendency is that we all tend to focus on the negative first and overlook the good. We oftentimes focus on the over-sensationalising of the people who are being killed, shot, knifed/stabbed or maimed or put in prison.

When we have more than one child we need to navigate crisis intervention so that they are aware that we will be there for all of them in their time of need but that it is necessary to focus on the one most in need for a short period of time while keeping a watchful eye over the others.  Even Jesus did the same, he left the 99 to go after the one.  Which is what we did in the first book.  Now in this second book continuing from where the first book left off, we had to go after the Older brother.

In 'He Came Back' we had to leave our other children to go after the Older Brother just like in the Parable of the Prodigal Son. I had to put myself in the shoes of the Father when his oldest son reacted to his reaction to welcoming back his younger son who had been lost but was now found.  

In 'He Came Back' we had to deal with the outbursts from our older son, cutting us off on social media, and then I had to deal with what was an eruption of feelings  and words, which had been kept under wraps as he fought to emerge from the shadows, from dumbing-it down, and what he thought was not being recognised in his own right.  Through pain and trauma, we crossed the bridge to acknowledging guilt, moving beyond pain, to healing and restoration.  

We look forward receiving your questions and sharing your experiences at the event!
