Lost in Translation – Learn 5 Strategies To Get Your Kids / Teens To Talk

When parents communicate effectively, their kids / teens not only feel respected, understood and valued but are more likely to share their dreams& obstacles. If parents communicate ineffectively, kids / teens tend to shut down, avoid, blame, attack and become increasingly distant. In this keynote, Dr. Karyn will help you understand the enormous power you have in your kids’/ teens’ lives, and will help you learn the art of effective communication, including solution-focused techniques that will encourage your kids / teens to open up to you.

Please join the Wellington Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (CPIC) as they welcome Dr. Karyn Gordon to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic High School, 54 Westmount Road, Guelph, on January 16th, 2014 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Dr. Gordon is a leading North American parenting expert, best-selling author and motivational speaker. She is also the founder of dkLeadership: An Inspirational Leadership and Coaching Centre for Families, located in New York and Toronto.

Free baby-sitting will be provided.

We sincerely hope that you will consider joining us for this opportunity to learn more about how to effectively communicate with your children. This event is open to all parents in Wellington County and beyond.
