EFFECTIVE PARENTING IS
TOPIC FOR ZONTA WORKSHOP
A workshop to help participants inspire and empower their children is scheduled for the August LifeForward workshop hosted by Zonta Club of SCV. The free women’s workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, August 19, at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave. The workshop will help participants focus on becoming more effective parents.
Presenter will be Alex Urbina, a teen and parenting expert, who helps teens and parents reach their full potential in their relationships and their lives. He is the author of a new book, “The Inspirational Parent.”
The workshop will teach participants the techniques and skills to inspire and empower themselves and their families. Workshop topics will include creating a deep and meaningful relationship with children; building children’s self-esteem; inspirational parenting techniques that children need; effective communication between parents and children; and developing interpersonal tools for parents and individuals. Urbina also will present valuable insight gained from teens worldwide.
Free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register in advance at (661) 288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request. This is predicted to be one of the most popular workshops in the LifeForward program, and is expected to draw a capacity crowd.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, deal with drug and cyber bullying issues, establish a career path and get a job, maintain healthy eating and exercise habits, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be!
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers. KHTS AM-1220 is a co-sponsor of the series with Zonta.
Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
