In recognition of the important supportive role of parents in children and youth’s social and emotional development, City of Fremont Human Services Department and Fremont Unified School District have jointly funded a series of free parenting workshops held at various school sites and community centers in 2017-2018. The workshop topic “Raising bicultural children in a challenging environment” is particularly relevant for parents who grew up in a different cultural background than that of their children. Through the presentation, parents increase their understanding of the strengths and challenges of multiculturalism as well as characteristics of adolescents’ development. They also learn how to cultivate a child’s self-confidence, reinforce positive behaviors, and improve communication.
On Wednesday, June 20, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm, a parenting workshop will be held at the Fremont Family Resource Center (FRC) at 39155 Liberty St., H-800 Pacific Room. The presenter will be Joan Zhang, LMFT, and the workshop will be conducted in Mandarin language. Everyone is welcome to attend and pre-registration for attending the workshop is not required.
For more information about the parenting workshop, please contact Joyce Lim or Joan Zhang at Fremont Human Services Department’s Youth & Family Services Division at 510-574-2100.
