zoom meetingJoin us for an insightful session of the DJUSD Parenting Series “Blending Modern and Traditional Parenting,” taking place virtually via Zoom on Wednesday, May 15th, from 6-7:30pm. This workshop is designed for parents who are navigating the complex landscape of raising children in today’s world.

Modern parenting is a relatively recent development that is marked by a child-centered, emotion-focused and process-oriented approach. Traditional parenting has a long legacy and is family-centered, behavior-focused and responsibility-oriented. This workshop will explore the benefits and challenges of both approaches and discuss strategies for blending these two styles of parenting. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enhance your parenting toolkit!
