We are raising children in a world where many are exposed too early and too often to topics, experiences, and information they are not equipped to deal with on a social/emotional level. Use of smart phones, tablets, computers, and the influence of social media, provide 24/7 exposure that is sometimes difficult to resist. Moreover, we are learning of increased numbers of young people experiencing mental health concerns as a result.
We all want our children to be healthy, happy, and successful. Learn ways to establish purposeful and proactive parenting choices that support the overall health and well-being of your children and family. This workshop addresses the following topics:
- Factors to consider in support of age-appropriate guidelines for media use
- Establishing and articulating expectations and family values
- How parents can help: strengthening self-esteem and self-confidence
- Building open lines of communication with your child
- Parent self-care: modeling positive and healthy coping strategies
