Parent Workshops

The parent workshops are organized with an opening (keynote) session followed by various options for small group workshops depending on your interest and the division(s) of your child(ren).

Opening Session from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.


The way we talk to kids has a huge impact on their learning and ability to listen to us. Do you ever feel it’s challenging to communicate with your children? How do you get them to actually listen? How can you avoid arguing with your children? In this workshop we’ll go over ways to effectively communicate with children, including verbal and nonverbal communication and active-listening skills, in order to foster better understanding, engagement, and cooperation between you and your child. 

Presented by the Counseling Department. In the AC Auditorium from 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
