FREE Parenting Workshop: Given by INSPIRE, a sponsor of the FLHS PTA

Creating Lasting Family Connections (CLFC)

A panel of college presidents was recently asked how high schools could better prepare students for college. The unanimous answer: send us emotionally healthy young people.

To that end, we have structured workshops that take place as a 90 min session, once a week, over 5 weeks — for Parents/Guardians only.

WHAT IS CLFC: Participants in our Creating Lasting Family Connections workshop will experience a focused exploration of interpersonal communication skills, expression of feelings and self-awareness. Guided by a trained facilitator, parents will learn effective strategies to strengthen family relationships–especially with teens. They are also provided the opportunity to practice these skills in a comfortable and confidential group setting. Open to both Ludlowe and Warde families!

WHY: Research shows that clear and consistent messages from parents to be one of the most influential factors as teens make decisions about alcohol and drug use. Studies also show small communities (such as parents of same age children, same school district, same neighborhood, etc.) that gather to discuss common challenges are more connected and productive. Effective communications can reduce stress in families.

Look for new meeting dates coming above for the 2018-19 school year.
