“Parents Just Don’t Understand:” A Parent-Teen Forum to Break Communication Barriers
April 13 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm| $20
In preparation for the beautiful month of Ramadan, MCC invites parents and teens (13 to 19) to participate in an open forum intended to bridge the generational gap and help navigate difficult discussions, answer complex questions, and bring clarity to both groups about effective ways to communicate and encourage harmonious and mutually beneficial relationships.
Our panelists include local community members Azmat Zeeshan Mukhtar, Hina Khan-Mukhtar, Hosai Mojaddidi, and Haroon Sellars. They each bring 10+ years of experience as both parents and educators who work closely with children and teens of all backgrounds.
1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. (Zuhr to Asr) | Sat., April 13 | $20/family (lunch included)
