Join us for these upcoming no-cost webinars from Search Institute.

So What Did You Really Expect? Challenging Our Kids to Be Their Best

Dr. Gene RoehlkepartainPresented by Eugene C. Roehlkepartain, Ph.D., Vice President, Research and Development at Search Institute on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014, 12PM - 1PM, CDT.

What do we expect of each other in our families? When we talk with young people, they often know what their parents expect of them (even if they don't follow the expectations). But what do we expect from each other that will help our families thrive while helping our kids develop an "internal compass" that guides them when we're not around?

This webinar will explore these and other questions, drawing on Search Institute's research on youth development and family strengths. Participants in the webinar will

  • examine the areas where they need to set clear, consistent expectations in their families
  • explore the inevitable tension between establishing expectations and maintaining care and connectedness
  • identify strategies to enhance how they set expectations that tie to priorities, values, and stages of life
  • surface concrete ways to work with families to set or reinforce clear, consistent expectations both within the family and in the broader community

This is the fourth webinar in a five-part series that examines the practical implications of family strengths, based on The American Family Assets Study.
