About the workshop
Hear what a father (of two kids) has to share on the roles of Dad and Mom. Moms are amazing, but Dads have an even bigger role to play these days. During the workshop, everyone will come together as a family in three interactive segments filled with creative activities and exercises. The segments will help you and your spouse learn how to re-engage your family’s dynamics, move away from digital distractions, and get back to a more personal and CREATIVE environment!
Creative Stories – Together as a family, play with simple story ideas and learn how to “re-imagine” them to come up with more exciting new stories.
Creative Games – It takes so little to make so much when we are creative. Challenge yourself and create a game for the whole family to participate!
Creative Play – Children learn through play. So can adults! Have loads of fun while exploring the different roles of each family member through mirroring, movement exercises, and simple improvisations around family life.
About the speaker
In our fast-paced society where the family essentially entails two working parents, parenting and household chores are more challenging. How does a couple then cope with work, family and parenting? The workshop will examine the factors and strategies that help contribute to the success of 21st century parenting.
