Child Development and Parenting
Mothers of Sons and Dads of Daughters – Class
These talks occur twice a year and take place at Seattle Children’s main campus.
Mothers of Sons – A Parent Talk
Sometimes mothers feel confused on what their role should be in steering their son in his course toward manhood. Rob Lehman, MD, co-founder of Great Conversations, will discuss some of the unique issues facing boys as they mature; some of the things on their minds; the role of male and female role models; and strategies in building communication between the preteen/teen boy and his mom.
Dads of Daughters – A Parent Talk
There is nothing quite like being a dad of a daughter. However, sometimes as our girls get older, dads can wonder about how to stay connected and strong in their relationship. Julie Metzger, RN, MN, co-founder of Great Conversations, explores how dads can remain close to their daughters while balancing their hopes for their lives. Information about girls’ physical, social, emotional and cognitive development along with strategies to promote understanding and maintain healthy communication will be explored.
