Hot tips for rais­ing kids

Central Leader - - News -

Build­ing boys rather than fix­ing men and know­ing what a girl needs to flour­ish in an im­age­con­scious so­ci­ety, are the top­ics of two sem­i­nars at Mt Al­bert Gram­mar School next week.

The first sem­i­nar, Hot Tips for Grow­ing Boys, will be held on Tues­day start­ing at 7.30pm.

It dis­cusses the fact that boys will au­to­mat­i­cally get the “hard­ware” to be adult men, but that they need to down­load the “soft­ware” to be real men from good role mod­els.

Hot Tips for Grow­ing Girls will be held at the same time the fol­low­ing night and will look at the vi­tal role that par­ents play when form­ing views of them­selves, es­pe­cially as they ne­go­ti­ate pu­berty.

The sem­i­nars aim to in­spire par­ents to meet th­ese chal­lenges, gain the skills and in­sights to help give chil­dren good fam­ily sup­port, a pos­i­tive peer group, a strong sense of self and healthy per­sonal bound­aries.

The cost for one per­son per sem­i­nar is $20 or $30 for a cou­ple.

Both nights for one per­son costs $30 or $50 for a cou­ple.
