Parents face many challenges during their children’s growth years, from infancy to young adulthood and beyond. There are so many questions that arise in their daily lives. Parents are rushed to complete tasks at hand, sometimes pondering the questions, yet never having time to seek or resolve or to find the answers. In this all-day event, offered in English and Spanish, there is an opportunity to get the answers to many of these important questions.
The Summit, subtitled “Everything You Want To Know But Are Afraid to Ask,” makes available the time and place for parents to attend workshops/seminars targeting a variety of topics including: preschool readiness; college entrance requirements; online safety; harassment; awareness of social issues; faith formation and bullying.
Teens and preteens will be treated to age appropriate sessions to help them make better sense of today’s social messages. Younger children will be supervised in KidZones, one for ages three and four and another for ages 5 - 12. Children who are three and under must stay with a guardian or parent. There will be age appropriate activities in each area, plenty of supervision and organized check in and check out. Lunch will also be provided.
