Big Bear Valley, CA — The local parent support group, Common Ground–which was formed as an off-shoot of the Lighthouse Project and their efforts to foster a child-honoring community–will once again offer a free opportunity for parents to learn and grow, while also promoting strong, supportive relationships with their teens. On upcoming Mondays, free seminars will be offered at Community Church by the Lake (on the Boulevard at Knickerbocker in Big Bear Lake), starting at 6:30pm. Program coordinator Julann Warren tells KBHR that the May 17 Common Ground workshop will focus on teen dating issues—“from how to talk to your kids about sex and intimacy,” she says, “to how to teach your teen to protect themselves from inappropriate behavior.” This coming Monday’s session will also include guest speakers from DOVES, and a high school student who will be on hand to interpret teen-speak. To participate in these free Common Ground workshops for parents, which will include teens and money on May 24 and safe cell phone and Internet use on June 7, call to RSVP at 801-1766.
