What Does My Kid Think about God and Religion?

with Rev. Aaron Twitchell

Religion and spirituality are deceptively difficult for teenagers and parents to talk about--sometimes even more than the usual suspects like drugs and parties. And yet, research has shown that young people are not only emotionally invested in religious ideas, but also may be "hard-wired" for spiritual exploration. In this webinar, we will cover some interesting research into adolescent spirituality and talk about ways we can engage this aspect of the teenage spirit. Rev. Aaron Twitchell presents. Original air date: November 10, 2016

Parenting for Good

with David Streight

There are five parenting practices that have been shown to maximize the chances of raising a “good” child. “Good” in this context refers to a child who has a conscience, who develops moral reasoning skills, and who is both empathetic and altruistic. In this 40-minute webinar, CSEE Senior Scholar David Streight will explain these five practices with practical examples, and put them in the context of the general moral development work that CSEE does with schools. Original air date: January 28, 2016  -  5:30pm EST
