3/5/19 Week 1: Tonight all of the families met each other and our staff and vice versa. After the family meal the parents and youth separated for their lessons in which both groups were very interactive with our facilitators. The children were excited to get to express their hopes and dreams for their futures and allow their parents to “guess” which poster was the one that belonged to them. All of the parents were able to connect on the level that they had all experienced the same sort of issues with communication, or lack thereof, and were soaking in all that they were being taught. Our first night was a complete success and both participants and facilitators can’t wait to get to session two!
A parent who attended the session stated, “My daughter has already asked, ‘Mom, can we please come to the next session, I really love this class!’ and that’s all the confirmation I needed that we both are in need of this program.”
