Practical Parenting: #relationshipgoals
Relationships can be supportive, fun, even exciting. However, we know that sometimes relationships can mean disappointment, broken hearts and even abuse. It's important for parents to teach their children about healthy relationships. We want you to be able to start the conversation with your teen, so they'll more likely feel comfortable coming to you in the future when they need to talk. Join us for our next Practical Parenting on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 3 p.m. The focus is #relationshipgoals: Guiding Teens Toward Healthy Relationships. Our speaker is Elishua Markham, Community Services Director at SafeHouse of Shelby County. This free session does not require a reservation. It will be held in our Youth Program Room. Follow the starred hallway through the Kid Zone. The room is at the very end of that hall.
