Finding Your Family's Voice
Whether it’s a family member who is a great listener, a co-worker who gives thoughtful responses or an elected representative who understands and addresses concerns, being heard is powerful. More than ever, cultivating your family’s “voice” to advocate for your children, family and community is crucial.
In this Parenting Guide, we will explore ways to cultivate family voices this fall. We will look into how the voice of ethics and morality develops in children, delve into strategies for effective communication and conflict resolution between generations, and consider the many ways to advocate for your family this fall and beyond. (HINT: You may already be doing many of these things!] To help you stay on top of current discussions in prenatal health, we will also have expert voices weigh in on the topic of marijuana use and pregnancy.
As ever, this Parenting Guide offers ideas for activities, DIY gifts to celebrate the holiday season, recipes, fun facts about parenting and much more.
First 5 LA invites you to make your family’s voice heard — at home, with friends and in your community.
