The final event for our inaugural year of the Fathers’ Forum is this Saturday, May 13. And we’re excited to have Ginger Furey join us as she leads an important discussion about parenting that develops respect for one’s sexuality.
A different topic, for sure, but dads play an important role in this discussion, and if you are unsure how to have “the chats” with your son or daughter, Ginger will provide some very helpful ideas.
— an announcement from the Fathers’ Forum of Darien. (This is the last scheduled meeting of the group until Fall 2017.)
Parents play a vital role in the creation of physical and emotional boundaries for children — boundaries which follow them into their adult lives.
Teaching children that they are in charge of their own body, and that it is okay to speak up when a person or situation makes them uncomfortable, is a powerful message that influences self-esteem and relationship dynamics (interpersonal interactions) throughout their lives.
“Consent Through the Ages” provides parents with an overview of these important topics and teaches them how to teach and model consent with their children at ALL ages. Highly interactive discussion for dads interested in learning more about parenting their children along these lines.
