WORKSHOP ON CROSS CULTURAL PARENTING
Great Parenthood Greece |

 BREAKING THE BARRIERS

Join us for another interactive and fun morning with Patrick Akrivos, Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

Many of us have made the decision to remain in Greece, raise our children and allow our cultures to intertwine. Many days are fantastic, family members are in unison and communication of different messages is managed successfully by both parents. In other instances, both parents differ based on culture and differences in upbringing. The barriers are raised, the parents cannot communicate thus the child/children suffer the consequences.

Let’s gather at the workshop, do some role playing and create awareness of prospective long term problems – these are some of our goals for that morning.

The title of the workshop is cross cultural parenting because of the reality many of us deal with… but the truth is the main topics that will be addressed that day are:

respect

comprehension

acceptance

communication

tolerance

differences

similarities

quality of life

well being of the children

Topics that regardless of the same culture or a different one, all couples face in the relationship – specially us new parents.

* This is a family event – you may bring your children, food/drinks, picnic blankets, bubbles, balloons, Twister game, etc.

Children under 9 months, non-walkers – may remain with the parents during the workshop.

Children older than 9 months – should be watched by an adult at all times.

Learning Steps – Montessori Preschool has opened the doors to their fabulous institution of learning. Great Parenthood Greece is more than thankful and we’ll appreciate the attendees’ cooperation with keeping the site as clean and pristine as we’ll find it!
