PART 3 of 4:
Sunday, April 8th
5 PM – 6:30 PM
Workshop: Raising Socially-Conscious Sons and Daughters
In an age of discontent, this panel discussion explores and raises parents’ awareness of how we see the world and people in it and how parents unconsciously pass off their biases to their children. Child psychologists, mindfulness teachers and other experts will provide tips and tools that can help revolutionize the way we raise our children. Topics covered will include: how to start the conversation; how to answer your children’s questions to eliminate the “awkward pause” and moments of fear or doubt; how to support your child’s learning around this topic; how to create a safe space for your children to talk about all the things that keep up us silent and separate from the people we perceive to be different.
Event is FREE of charge. Registration is required at mindfulresistance.eventbrite.com
