PARENT ORGANIZING: BECOMING THE AWESOME PARENT YOU ALREADY ARE

The first-ever Parenting Workshop series at St. Stephen’s Youth Programs is off to a fantastic start! St. Stephen’s Youth Programs is partnering with Families First  to offer a series of four workshops for parents to gain skills and confidence in their parenting. During the first workshop, which focused on creating homework-healthy households, parents learned how to adapt the homework environment to individual learning styles and work with their child to create a routine. The highlight of the second workshop on school partnerships was parents role-playing a parent-teacher conference at their child’s school. Parents have been loving the workshops so far. In the words of one mom, “It was very helpful. I was happy with everything and the atmosphere is very comfortable.” The next two workshops will cover Parenting and Technology (March 8th), and Challenges and Changes (March 22nd). This series is offered in Spanish and is open to the public. If you or someone you know would like to attend, please contact Ariel (ariel@ststephensbos.org).
