Your family has been invited to a very special “Family Dinner.” Our teen support group is getting together this month for a cooking class where they will prepare a whole array of holiday favorites from a crock pot for your entire family. This night will include fun interactive discussions over dinner for you and your loved ones.
Interested? Read on for special RSVP instructions……
We will start off at 5pm with just our teen group who will be in the driver’s seat through many topics like; the importance of kitchen etiquette, making healthy choices, and how kitchen cleanliness will keep us from getting sick. Each teen will also get hours of hands on instruction while performing the food preparation techniques needed to prepare many of the recipes for this night. This kitchen adventure will provide these teens with education and confidence in the kitchen as well as the opportunity to fine tune their problem-solving and communication skills as they navigate their way together creating a meal suited for a family feast.
That is where we are asking you and the rest of your immediate family to come back to join in on this meal and a night of family fun from 7pm to 8pm.
This month’s Survivors Supporting Survivors is aimed to spark conversation and open communication about tradition and family. We hope to empower your family and teen with the skills and tools that build stronger, brighter futures by initiating open dialogue. Families will be provided Conversation Jars, filled with open ended questions, that will invite each member of the family to explore their imagination, tell stories, think, and problem solve. Please join us in this celebration of family and tradition. Let’s help our teens know where they came from and equip them with the tools to get them where they are going.
If you and your family would like to participate in this upcoming event please reply
to this email with your RSVP and you families details of who will be attending as well as your favorite color.
Feel free to call me any time for more details!!
It is the time of year where we reflect on the things we are thankful for, celebrate traditions, and surround ourselves with family and friends. But, why is this so important to do? And, what is really happening when we take time to communicate and spend time with our families? In a study conducted at Emory University, researchers studied the link between shared family traditions through communication or storytelling and adolescents’ emerging identity and well-being. The study showed that the more a child communicated with their family and shared traditions, the more their general self-worth became. These children showed a greater ability to plan for the future and greater acceptance of one’s self and fewer internal and external problem behaviors.
