Having Meaningful Conversations with Your Child (even in tough times): A Workshop for Parents of Kids in Pre-K through 5th Grade

Saturday, June 27, 9 a.m.-noon

Chances are your child asks a lot of questions about stories in the news, things that happen in school, maybe even why bad things happen and why people die. How do you answer questions like these when the world can be confusing and overwhelming even for adults? The good news is that you don’t have to have all the answers. In this workshop, Grey Havens Philosophy facilitators will teach you how to:

  • have meaningful conversations with your child even about scary topics
  • help your child think in ways that are critical, creative, and compassionate
  • use an exploration of big questions—the same kinds of questions philosophers ask—to help your family cope with uncertainty

Registration is $15. A follow-up philosophy discussion for the whole family on June 30 is free as are our thinking programs for all ages. After you register, we will send you information about how to join us online.

The Thinking Teen’s Guide to Life (and other scary stuff)

Thursday, July 2, 10 a.m.-noon

Do you wish that you had more chances to talk about the issues of our day, your place in the world, and the meaning of, well, everything? If your answer is “yes,” this 5-part workshop is for you!

In each session, you will learn to sharpen your thinking skills to help you:

  • evaluate news stories and sources
  • weigh contradictory and changing advice from experts and other adults
  • balance reason and emotion
  • think clearly about what matters most to you and how you want to live
All of this will happen in an atmosphere of mutual respect where you and your thoughts are valued. This isn’t about what to think, but about how to think. It’s also a chance to let your inner philosopher shine!
$15 to register. Space is limited. After you register, we will send you information about how to join us online.
