12/21/20: Session D of Powerful Families started off with the youth going on a scavenger hunt to find certain items around their house. They had fun doing this activity and it really got their energy level up. After that, we delved into discussing who are the people they consider role models. Some youth stated parents, others said civic leaders and school teachers were some people who came to mind when they thought of role models.
The caregivers went on a little scavenger hunt of their own. This was accompanied by a few laughs. Additionally, caregivers discussed the type of friendships their youth have and how they can monitor those friendships. One parent stated, “I want to know what types of friends my child has and meet those friends and their parents. This will enable me to keep my child safe and around positive people.”
