"Raising a Child Who is Most Likely to Succeed"
Pembroke Pines, FL (April 15, 2019) – As part of an ongoing series, parents/guardians of school-age children, educators and youth advocates are invited to a special presentation, “Raising Positive Children: Parenting on Purpose,” focusing on “Raising a Child Who is Most Likely to Succeed.” The featured guest speaker will be family expert Dr. Robert Barnes and will be held at the Charles F. Dodge City Center, located at 601 City Center Way. It will take place on Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
This is the fourth in a series of presentations hosted by Pembroke Pines Commissioner Iris A. Siple, West Campus Charter School Principal Michael Castellano, the Education Roundtable Forum and the City of Pembroke Pines to call attention to and find solutions for the many issues parents and children face today at home and at school.
Dr. Barnes became the President of Sheridan House Family Ministries in 1974 and served in that capacity until he assumed the role of CEO in 2017. He is the host of a daily radio program, blog and podcast called "Parenting on Purpose," as well as the author of 10 books for families, published in nine different languages. Some of his best sellers include Single Parenting, Winning the Heart of Your Step Child, and Ready for Responsibility.
“Raising a child to succeed does not just happen by accident,” said Dr. Barnes. “There are important lessons that we all need to teach our children that will help them in their adult life. An important question for this is where to begin.”
As part of his presentation, Dr. Barnes will address various family dynamics, setting boundaries, share what children need to know before leaving home, and how parents and children can have a meaningful and positive relationship.
“Dr. Barnes is truly inspiring, and we are very pleased that he will be sharing his insight and parenting knowledge with us,” said Commissioner Siple. “I am confident we will all leave with a new understanding of how we can help and relate to our children and grandchildren in this very challenging world.”
Admission and parking are free. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please call 954-450-1030. Tickets are not required, however, participants are encouraged to register at http://tinyurl.com/raisingpositivechildren4
