Shine On! Raising Resilient Girls Upcoming Parent Workshop Series


PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Oct. 20, 2014) — The second of SUNY Plattsburgh’s Shine On! Raising Resilient Girls Fall Workshop Series is coming up this Oct. 29. Shine On! is hosting a series of three workshops this fall designed to teach parents how to raise resilient, confident girls.

Oct. 29 — How To Talk To Your Daughter About The Icky Stuff: From first periods and shaving her legs to STDs and sex, parents often struggle with these embarrassing “icky” topics and how to talk to daughters so they’ll listen. Local Certified Nurse Midwife, Karen Case will be on hand to help parents with information to make it through these difficult conversations.

Nov. 18 — Healthy Relationships: Helping Your Daughter Choose Positive Friends and Partners: We all know girls who choose boyfriends who treat them poorly or friends who thrive on nasty drama. Local psychiatrist Joanne Astill, MD and Rhema Lewis, Health Educator & Outreach Coordinator at PSU will discuss how to teach your daughter what to look for in a true friend and how to choose love interests that will inspire them, not inhibit them.

Join the women of Shine On! in an informational night out with good food, a glass of wine and great conversation while you learn tips and tools to raise a strong daughter. Workshops will be held at the new 30City venue on City Hall Place in downtown Plattsburgh. Thanks to the CVPH Foundation, all workshops are free and open to the community. Workshops will be held from 6:00-7:30 p.m.
