Digital Media Use in our Families: Managing our hangups, beliefs, & ideals
Come explore the use of digital media in your family during this 2-hour workshop lead by Rachel Wigglesworth of Growing Great Families. Rachel will help you consider the dynamics at play within your family’s digital media use and conflicts surrounding it. Importantly she will discuss the hidden benefits of creating a “Technology Pact” within your family, and lead you through steps of creating one for your own family.
Raising an Adult
Join Rachel Wigglesworth of Growing Great Families on a journey exploring what you hope for your children, and the parenting decisions you make and interactions you have with your kids on a daily basis to help them get there. Realizing that your children/teens will someday be adults, we will discuss the character traits and skills you want your kids to have when they leave the home, and how you are teaching them. Bring paper and pencil to take notes and dive deep in creating a plan for how you will help your child/teen on the path toward adulthood! Appropriate for parents of children of all ages.
Rachel will draw from the works of Julie Lythcott-Haims (“How to Raise an Adult”), VIcki Hoefle (“The Straight Talk on Parenting”), and William Stixrud & Ned Johnson (“The Self Driven Child”) among others.
