WHAT EVERY PARENT/GUARDIAN WANTS TO KNOW!
This event isn’t just a training it is an experience that no parent or guardian wants to miss out on. Especially our FATHERS, UNCLES, AUNTIES, MOTHERS, GRANDPARENTS that are raising our youth!
No matter how old your child is this is a summit that will benefit you and me. The day will be jammed packed with INSIGHTS, SECRETS and IDEAS on how to keep your child free from risky behaviors and how to intervene if your child is engaged in risky behaviors. Not to mention you will have an opportunity to learn more about being an ADVOCATE for your child/teen in the community and/or at school while being pampered with DOOR PRIZES, GIVEAWAYS, FREE BREAKFAST & LUNCH, SNACKS, RESOURCE FAIR, YOUTH ENTERTAINMENT, and much more!
You will leave feeling good and have an action plan on how you can help your child stay safe and free from violence and crime while they strive to reach their personal best!
Help get the word out by printing and distributing the summit flyer and pledge form!
This looks like a helpful resource for families.
What African American parents want educators to know
Gail L. Thompson
1 Review Greenwood Publishing Group, 2003 – Education – 209 pages
Thompson designed an empirical study to gather feedback from African-American parents on numerous issues pertaining to their children’s schooling experiences. The results, discussed in this book, can be utilized to improve the schooling experiences of African-American children nationwide.
