Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish invites you to join us for a 3-part parenting workshop: Raising Kids in a Toxic Culture: Religion as a Protective Factor
Tuesdays: March 28, April 11 and April 25 7:00 – 8:00 PM in the OLMC School Gym
Every day our children receive messages from advertisers, music, movies, television, adults and peers, to name just a few. Kids experience more stress and anxiety and are at risk for more problem behaviors today than ever before. We can’t put our kids in a bubble, but what if we could “inoculate” them?
Developmental psychologist and former Cornell University Medical College researcher, Dr. Mariette Danilo will discuss how we can help kids navigate a world where you are what you look like and what you can buy. The good news is that the research has identified Religion as a “protective factor” against these negative outcomes.
Join us as we cut through the hype and discuss the real sources of self-esteem, motivation, joy and optimism. We will explore: · Teenager 101: Understanding the teenager · Parent self-awareness and the power of negative thinking · The amazing power of failure · Pathways to joy vs. happiness · What the research tells us are the most effective parenting styles and the “deadly sins” of parenting · Practice parenting skills: How to listen, set boundaries, and have a difficult conversation using CAREfrontation
**This program is for adults only** Reserve your spot by calling 215-348-5907 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
