Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) Parent Webinar – Raising Our Village: Creating a Culture of Dignity
February 15 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST
This presentation is a call to action to help parents support their children to thrive. From young people’s friendships, anxiety, social media use, conflicts with friends and family, and the constant pressure to “keep up,” we will share how to best connect with young people; especially when they need us most. As young people navigate a constantly changing educational environment, we know a few things are certain, supportive relationships and social skills are critical to their emotional well-being. But these skills are not “soft skills;” they are essential for young people to engage in education, manage emotions and become responsible and positive members of families and communities.
This presentation will:
Define the difference between dignity and respect and their impact on communicating with young people
Establish foundational principles in alignment with community and family values
Help guide children and students as they navigate their friendships online
Provide a deeper understanding of the role and purpose of emotions
Strengthen communication between adults and young people to avoid breakdowns and power struggles
Share concrete skills to increase adults’ ability to support the emotional well-being of young people
