|What parent could turn a blind eye to their child’s future? |
The answer, hopefully, is no one in our community.
Union City schools will be sponsoring a program to address that future Tuesday evening at 7 at Union City Civic Auditorium. The doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for refreshments and there will be door prizes at this free event for families.
Author, dynamic speaker and entrepreneur Ron Glodoski will be the guest speaker. Glodoski is a leading national expert on bullying, substance abuse and resiliency and is the author of “How to Be a Successful Criminal: The Real Deal on Crime, Drugs and Easy Money.”
After speaking to students in the school system in grades third through 12th earlier in the school day, Glodoski will be talking about several topics with their parents that evening.
• helping children learn what is important to “embrace” as well as “reject”;
• gaining insight in to the stress and pressures of a child’s daily life:
• discussing learned behaviors and how they correlate with diversity and acceptance;
• realizing how asset building turns into healthy lifestyles;
• learning how our thoughts create our reality;
• understanding the different learning styles to help children meet their graduation requirements.
Glodoski, whose work has been acclaimed nationally by parents, educators, administrators, judges, police officers, counselors and social workers, will be challenging children to believe in the value of their own lives and stressing the importance of respecting themselves and others.
The Tuesday night program is open to the community.
