Description

Overview of Weekend Sessions

This workshop, by the Family Youth Institute and sponsored by the NICC Youth Dept at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, is intended to help parents to navigate through the teenage years of parenting. This interactive workshop presents information on child development through the adolescent years, highlights diverse methods of helping teens through loving relationships, and covers effective communication tips and pointers in order to help strengthen connection through these potentially tough but essential teen years.

The RealTalk on Friday night with Dr. Sameera Ahmed is intended to facilitate a conversation on how to find balance in the pressures, expectations, and stresses of being a Muslim here and now. We will discuss the questions: In what ways would you like to see your parents being supportive? What would feel like help in finding a balance?
