Mission Hospital Partners with Dale Carnegie Training to bring parents and teens together for "Date Night"

04/23/2017

April 23, 2017, Laguna Beach, CA. Mission Hospital is hosting a three-part workshop for parents and their teens called, “Date Night: An Evening with the Important Young Person in Your Life.”

“The Date Night series is a creative and fun way to help parents and teens communicate with one another,” explains Marci Mednick with Mission Hospital. “Mission Hospital’s primary goal is to serve our community and improve their overall health and well-being. Providing an event for parents and teens to spend some meaningful time together ultimately improves their relationship. And, believe it or not, teens tell me that they would like to spend more one-on-one time with their parents.”

Mission Hospital has partnered with Dale Carnegie Training to bring in the best teen experts from Orange County to provide sessions on Wednesday evenings for three weeks, starting May 10, 2017 in Laguna Beach. The expert-led training will help build interpersonal skills easing the transition to high school. Interactive sessions focus on building communication skills, how to effectively express differing opinions, and manage stress in a healthy way. In hope of making it easier for families to attend, the three-part series will include dinner each evening. The sessions are highly interactive and participants will gain valuable skills that they can put into practice. “In our world of booked calendars, social media and screens, it’s not only harder than ever to be a teen, but also to be the parent of one,” said Mednick. “Date Night is specifically designed to add a break in your week from the digital world and switch the focus to family relationships. This series will bring you and your teen closer together as you explore new ways of communicating. Scholarships are available upon request.”

May 10, May 17 and May 24 | 6:30-8 p.m.
