EXPLORING HEALTHY MASCULINITY: A Boy’s Life (North Seattle)

Currently, the dominant narrative concerning men in our culture includes ideas like boys don’t cry, boys will be boys, if he’s mean to you it must mean he likes you, and man up.

masculinity. We will focus on opening up about what being a man or boy means to us individually, as well as seeking healthier ways of relating to ourselves and each other.

Groups will be held in Seattle at Ryther’s Main Campus on Thursdays, from 5:30 – 7:00 PM, October 10th through December 12th. Off for Thanksgiving, November 28th. Snacks will be provided.

Topics to be discussed:

6-week Parenting Teens with Positive Discipline (Seattle)

Are you and your teen(s) seeing the world differently? Would you like to: 
Improve communication?
Increase accountability and integrity?
Help them learn from their mistakes and provide a path to recover from mistakes?

This 6-week class provides tools for parents that teach youth valuable social and life skills. It differs from a general Positive Discipline Parenting class in its focus on adolescent brain development. We provide parents with the understanding and resources for effective parenting through the teen years.

Positive Discipline techniques are respectful and non-punitive and are based on both common sense and research. They help parents strike an important balance between being kind and firm.

Join us in a relaxing, fun environment, where parents build community and participate in activities designed to deepen an understanding of their children, and bring more peace and joy into the home.

This class is open to parents of middle and high school aged youth (11+).

Please register by Monday, March 18.

Tuesday evenings, 6:30-9:00pm. March 26, April 2, (skip April 9), 16, 23, 30, May 7, 2019
