Kidoinfo Announces the 2010-11 Conversation Series

[ 4 ] September 6, 2010 |

At Kidoinfo we like to share; connecting parents with information, new ideas and their local community. Raising Kids in a Digital World ConversationI created Conversation events so parents would have an opportunity to meet in real life, learn about an issue and talk about how it relates to their world.

Based on the success and feedback from last year’s Conversations, I am pleased to announce the topics for the 2010-11 season. This year we will again invite you to join the conversation early by submitting your ideas and questions concerning each topic.

FALL: November – “Traditions”
Traditions connect your children with your personal and cultural history and form the memories they will later pass on to their friends and families. Families decide how to carry on, blend or create new traditions. This discussion gives panelists and attendees a forum to share their traditions and learn something new to share with their loved ones in the upcoming holiday season.

WINTER: February – “Parenting Simply”
Parents are busy juggling work, home and child-care and today’s children seem to be scheduled from birth. What do parents and kids really need? Can parenting be simplified to create a satisfying lifestyle for you and your kids? Panelists will share online tools and offline tips to foster balance and peace of mind.

SPRING: May – Community Minded Kids”
How can we instill volunteerism and community activism in the next generation? A panel discussion with projects, online resources, and examples of how families can create meaningful connections to their communities and impact real change in the world.

We are still finalizing dates, locations and panelists for each event. If you have panelist recommendations, suggestions for any of the conversations or an idea for a future topic, please contact me with “Kidoinfo Conversations” in the subject line. If you would like to sponsor one Conversation or the whole series, please click here for Sponsorship details.
