As a parent, it often feels like the outside world is always one step ahead of you. Kids and teens of today have unprecedented access to information, and, thanks to computers and smartphones, interact with their peers online as much as they do in real life.
On top of that, they have to negotiate issues common to all generations, like substance abuse, mental health, suicide, and bullying. Beyond those topics, we scramble to help our kids in school and be prepared for college and career. Answers on how to navigate every challenge aren’t always clear, but the Parent Empowerment Night is specifically designed to help parents be better informed on critical issues and provide tools and tactics to protect kids from harmful behavior.
The Parent Empowerment Night is filled with compact workshops taught by experts in their respective fields. Topics include: College & Career Readiness, Student Engagement, Bullying Prevention, Internet and Smartphone Safety, Mental Health Issues, Preventing Child Abuse, Making Sense of Student Assessment, Parent Involvement, Substance Abuse Prevention, and Navigation GoMath and Wonders Websites. Please Join us for this free event, and let’s work together to secure the best future for our kids.
The first workshop will be held on Monday, March 5th from 6:00-8:30 pm at Taylorsville High School on 5225 S. Redwood Road. The first 200 parents in attendance will be treated to a free dinner!
