Parent Education Seminars
The high school years can sometimes be a confusing and challenging time for both teens and their parents. The LHS PTSA tries to be as supportive of our parents as possible, by inviting guest speakers to address the many concerns we come across during this period. There is comfort to be found too, in realizing that we all share these concerns – despite the differences in our cultural upbringing and vastly different customs and traditions!
We invite speakers to talk to us about how to keep the lines of communication open with our sometimes-uncommunicative teens. We learn about how much it is okay to ‘push’ our children to do their best, and when we cross the line into becoming harsh taskmasters.
We learn the reality about the virtual world our children seem to live in – and how to watch out for the traps they could fall into without being overly protective or hovering over them. We are grateful for help in how to find the ‘perfect’ college for our child – and ensuring once they are there that they have indeed made the right choice.
We learn tips on how to speak to our children about sex, drugs and alcohol – all challenges we know they will have to confront, but that we feel ill-equipped to prepare them for.
Join us at these seminars – an important way to share and acknowledge our concerns and learn how to put them in perspective.
