“Practical Tips to Raising Healthy African American Child: The African American Experience.”
Parenting is a hard job with many ups and down. As a parent, it is important to understand our children’s experiences in as many ways as possible. Understanding the impact of culture improves connectedness within the family.
This is an opportunity to explore and understand. This workshop will lay the foundation of knowledge, practices, and resources to support youth of color in Minnesota. This workshop is an intersection between family, cultural ethics and values. It will also address and assist with factors impacting children who come from a past of chaos or trauma-filled experiences.
In Ms. Reed’s workshops, her primary goals are to repair and enhance the self-esteem of children who doubt their self-worth. This workshop will set the foundation for your own personal reflection and lifelong planning.
