Giving Kids Good Values

In the past, parents could rely on their children learning good values through role modeling alone. Children and parents lived in close, tight-knit communities where the values they saw were reflected in the everyday lives of the people around them. In today's society, however, with communities and family more widely dispersed, children are exposed to alternate values through peers, television and other forms of media. How do we keep kids on the right track? How do we help them balance the tempting, tantalizing images all around them with good internal sensibility? Even more importantly, how do we help them resist high risk behaviors? This workshop will focus on the practical ways parents can build a foundation of trust and lay down the groundwork for good values. Parents will come away with actual skills that will help them keep their kids on the right track throughout their lives. This workshop is designed for parents of toddlers through teens.
