“Parents Night” is geared towards the parents children 8 to 17 years old, who want advice on how to keep their children focused on school and academic achievement.
“Parent involvement is crucial to the success of a child’s education,” said Mayor Laurene Weste in a city press release, “and this workshop is a great way for parents and guardians to gain valuable knowledge and develop new tools to support their kids in becoming the best students they can be.”
Holly Raridon, a therapist at the Child and Family Center, will lead the workshop, sharing resources available to help parents motivate their children.
She will cover a variety of topics:
- Academic goal-setting
- Steps to increasing the likelihood of success
- Supporting the student’s unique learning style
- Ways of reinforcing learning outside of school
- Recognizing barriers to becoming successful
The workshop is a way for the Child and Family Center to reach parents and children in the community who may not be their direct clients, said Michele Brown, alternative program manager at the center.
“We are looking out for the welfare of children everywhere,” she said. “We just want to assist parents whenever we have an opportunity to do so.”
