Parenting nowadays is not as simple as it was before. There are more stressors that impact on our families such as the internet, computer games, exposure to violence, the emergence of non-traditional families due to separation and overseas migration, challenging school and workload, and even heavy traffic! Parents now need to make more informed decisions and learn to parent with mindfulness.
The MLAC Institute for Children and Families is inviting you to a whole afternoon of listening, learning, and sharing as they discuss parenting across the different stages. The workshop, entitled “Parenting is Nation-Building,” is open to all who are taking care of children including single parents, teachers, social workers, counselors and even those who are now parenting their parents.
It will be held on February 17, 2011, from 1 to 6 p.m. at Club Filipino, Greenhills, led by speaker and facilitator Ma. Lourdes “Honey” A. Carandang, Ph.D., who is a well-known and acclaimed clinical psychologist, book author and professor at the University of the Philippines.
To make sure you have a slot, a reservation fee of P2,000 must be paid on or before January 28, 2011.
