03/11/20 Week D: During this session, the caregivers learned how to set expectations for their youth’s behaviors and choices.
They also discussed how to communicate with their youth’s friends and peers to help their youth make good choices.
The youth discussed who their role models are and how these people affect their decision making and behaviors.
They also discussed qualities they have and what qualities they would like to exhibit in themselves.
The “trust me” game really demonstrated the youths level of trust they have for their peers and siblings.
The families then came together and identified people who play key roles in their family dynamics and decision making. They also listed expectations the caregivers have for the youth’s friends and identified programs in the community that help our youth develop friendships.
