P.R.Y.D.E IN PARENTING
Jun 8 @ 9:30 am

 P.R.Y.D.E IN PARENTING

No parent is perfect… not the one that became a parent yesterday or 15 years ago or 25 years ago.  The cliché is that children are not born with manuals, but it’s so true.  Parents face many challenges as they raise their children, and it can be a daunting task.  But parents must hold onto the pride of being a parent, and focus on how to employ the principles of positive youth development. The PRYDE in this program is Positive and Resilient Youth Development Education, but this program came about from “pride” in being a parent. As we discuss the development of youth, we will also explore many of the challenges in raising children in this generation.  We will discuss challenges with drugs, alcohol, and other addiction issues, teen relationships, mentorship, identity management, among a myriad of other issues faced by parents today.
