Free Parent Education Program: Parenting With Identity in Mind
Shady Side Academy is hosting the free parent education program Parenting With Identity in Mind, presented by Rosetta Lee. Parents of children of any age, in any school, are invited to attend the program, which is free and open to the public. In this presentation, Lee will explore questions such as: How do we learn about various group identities such as female, African American, Buddhist, homosexual, middle class, etc.? From whom do we learn the meaning of these terms? What messages have we internalized about ourselves and others? What are the differences that result in one person having a healthy self-identity and another person experiencing own-group shame and hatred? Parents will learn how to instill positive self-identity in their children and coach them to be positive influences on others’ identities, so that together we can co-create inclusive communities that work toward success for all.
