PART 1 – ParentEd DIALOGUE SERIES

Session 1 (26 Jun): Parent Species – Becoming The Parent We Want To Be

PART 2

Session 5 (25 Sep): Raising Future Ready Kids – Media Literacy & Digital Intelligence

Due to technology and social media, our children are exposed to information and experiences previously not imagined possible. Plug into the cyberworld to help your child develop digital savviness and  media discernment, as you teach them online safety, data privacy and digital etiquette. The following topics will be covered:

  • Understand the impact of various forms of media and how it affects children’s perceptions, attitudes, and behaviour
  • Know how to set boundaries for your child
  • Use practical skills to engage with your child and leverage on media and technology

Session 6 (2 Oct): Raising Future Ready Kids: Relational Health & Sexual Intelligence

Talking about sexuality can make even the most confident parent “freeze” or take “flight.” But studies have shown that parental involvement has a tremendous impact on your child’s decisions regarding relationships and sex. If your child doesn’t hear about it from you, he or she will hear it from someone else. This is a foundational session on relational health and sexuality matters. The following topics will be covered:

  • Understand the issues youths face in today’s media-hyped world
  • Learn what you need to talk to your child about when it comes to sexuality education – health, relationships and character
  • Learn practical tips on how to start talking to your child about sex and relationships

Sessions 7 & 8 (9 & 16 Oct): The Modern Family

With so much talk and media bombardment on the LGBTQ+ issue, how can we make sense of gender and same-sex attraction from a Christian perspective? The Modern Family series (two sessions) is designed for parents to be updated on the LGBTQ landscape in Singapore. Parents with kids at a younger age can attend as preparation to engage in the content with their growing kids. Parents with older kids (even youths) can attend and learn to engage their older and more mature kids. Parents will gain practical handles and be strengthened in their biblical convictions on this topic.
