The St. Petersburg Global Presence Leadership Forum

=======================================================

On Thursday, May 7th, 2015 we are hosting a Leadership Forum for
St. Petersburg thought leaders to discuss means for strengthening
Life Skills education in our community.

WE CORDIALLY INVITE YOUR PARTICIPATION!

The St. Petersburg Global Presence Leadership Forum is proud to be one of multiple events organized by Global Presence Ambassadors in cities around the globe as part of Parenting 2.0’s P20 Talks 2015 regional gatherings and Thrive Thursday celebrations.

Who taught you life skills? 

Parents have traditionally served as the primary educators of Life Skills,” states Board President Marlaine Cover. “Given the complexity of Life Skills in the twenty-first century, it is vital we adopt a more dynamic curriculum. Media headlines provide a painfully real report card daily for our adherence to an antiquated Life Skills educational process.“

Life Skills, as defined by Parenting 2.0, are Mandatory skills human beings learn to thrive and commune with others.”  They include but are not limited to interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, safety and finance – skills traditionally taught by parents.

Twentieth-century increases in dual parent full-time employment, single parent households and expanded geographic separations from extended family members have all placed unprecedented stressors on an already impoverished Life Skills educational process. Media headlines – bullying, divorce, obesity, bankruptcy etc. – provide painfully real report cards daily for our adherence to an outmoded paradigm for human development in the twenty-first century.

The biggest impediment to substantive social change is the paradigm that parents will teach children Life Skills. This assures low competencies are passed from generation to generation, and communicates a low appreciation for the complexity of Life Skills in the twenty-first century. The Leadership Forums are intimate gatherings that provide front line professionals an opportunity to think outside the box, and advocate a more dynamic educational process. Ideas generated will be shared in cities worldwide.

The Global Presence Leadership Forums are part of Parenting 2.0’s P20 Talks 2015 regional gatherings and annual Thrive Thursday celebrations.

In 2012, Parenting 2.0 members made history by gathering professionals across multiple disciplines and continents for P20 Talks.  P20 Talks was the first professional conference to recognize Life Skills as distinct, critical skill sets teachable by third party educators.  Panel discussions followed individual presentations on such hot topics as digital safety, financial literacy, and interpersonal communications.

Listen to Marlaine Cover, MPA, President of Parenting 2.0.

Parenting 2.0:

Where every adult is recognized as “raising humanity” and children’s Life Skills Averages are as valued as their Grade Point Averages.
