Event Details

Come enjoy this candid discussion about fathering for dads, guardians, wives, and mentors!

It can be challenging for even the most involved dads and guardians to stay close to their girls during preteen and teen years. Mood swings and hormones kick in; girls crave more private time; and now there is the constant lure of screens to contend with too. How can dads stay close? And how can they boost their daughters' confidence as media inundates girls with sexist messages? We'll discuss:

How can dads help girls resist media's message that self-worth comes from sex appeal?

What can you do to encourage her to use her social media in more positive ways?

What kind of guidelines can you set for more quality time with her?

How can you respond when she shares media that is off-putting, boring, or worse?

 

PANELISTS (ALL DADS OF TWEEN OR TEEN GIRLS) INCLUDE:

  • Phil Lipof, Emmy award-winning NBC Anchor
  • Setti Warren, two-term Mayor of Newton, MA, and current Democratic candidate for Massachusetts Governor.  
  • Ramiro Torres, popular radio personality, is part of "The GetUp Crew" on radio Hot 96.9 Boston
  • John Baldament, the Director of Programming for The Fatherhood Project
