1- Topic: A Journey to Their World: A Closer Look at Teens Lives.
Speakers: Habeeb Quadri, Altaf Husain, Moderator: Iyad Alnachef
In this session speakers will give us a tour to youth world. Questions this session will answer include: Is there a connection between biological changes youth experience and their thinking/behavior? Does youth culture exist? What are its elements? What role does it it play in youth development? Answering these questions will help parents better understand where youth are.
2: Parents Count
Speakers: Mufti Hussain Kamani, Imam Tahir Anwar, Moderator: Fatima Mirza
Our parents have been the source of inspiration and guidance. They taught us how to walk, talk, think and beyond. But they did not have Facebook, YouTube and other major distractions and influencers competing with them as parents.
In this session, speakers will provide participants with specific tips on how to equip themselves as parents so that they could play their role effectively.
Topic 3: You are Not Alone- Monday
Panelists: Habeeb Quadri, Altaf Hussain, Mufti Hussain Kamani, Imam Tahir Anwar- Moderators: Fatima Mirza, Iyad Alnachef
Many think that they are the only ones struggling with the process of raising a youth. The reality is that every parent has this struggle (on different levels of course).
In this session panelists respond to your questions, concerns and issues you might be dealing with at home or within your community when it comes to dealing with youth and their issues.
