FREE Parenting Workshop: Given by INSPIRE and 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.

WHEN/WHERE:  Choose ONE session at 6:30-8pm @ FLHS Room 277, Library Lecture Hall — open to both Warde and Ludlowe families.

Session #1– 5 Tuesdays -Jan 23, Jan 30, Feb 6, Feb13, Feb 20,  OR

Session #2 – 5 Wednesdays – Mar 7, Mar 14, Mar 21, Mar 28, Apr 4,

There may be new times available — Email llanham@inspireinc.com to reserve your spot — for FREE!

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.

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.
