Understanding and Change in Parental Influence in the 21st Century

On September 28th, 2012, Mark Vander Vennen will present the workshop above at the Christian Schools Canada in Cambridge, ON.  For more information on this conference visit Christian Schools Canada.

The dynamics of parental influence in schools appear to be shifting in the 21st century.  One example is the emergence of “helicopter parents”.   These shifts seem that much more pronounced in “parent-led” Christian schools.  Are they a bane or a blessing?  How do we work with them?  In this interactive workshop we will listen to your stories and focus on strategies and approaches that seek to develop genuine collaboration between parents, students and teachers.
