May 31 – Understanding Media: Making Wise Choices
- Parents and kids alike are spending hours every week with media. Media and our young people have become one. You can no longer separate a teen from the digital technology they consume daily. The question is whether or not we are choosing the right things to watch and listen to. This seminar looks at how media shapes all of us, how teens make decisions often influenced by media, and a process for discerning right from wrong in our media selections.
June 7 – Understanding a Generation who Adore Themselves
- Our youth culture has fallen in love with Me, Myself, and I. This seminar looks at the growing trend of narcissism – its implications for our kids and how we can help them cope with the growing pressure to focus only on themselves.
“Paul’s cultural expertise and compassionate heart combine with his great sense of humor to make an excellent platform for communicating healthy ways of parenting youth. It is no secret that families all around us face countless complications and with the help of Paul, they will be better equipped to face them head on and be stronger because of it.”
“If you’re over 25, you can’t understand what it means to be a teenager today,,,
You can’t understand it because they can’t either.
No boundaries. No families. No innocence. No truth.
No time to be a kid.
