Can We Talk?

By: Kelly Smith

Date Posted: 1999-11-19

“Can We Talk?” will be the big question during a presentation on Monday, November 22nd. Jerry L. Newberry, Executive Director of the National Education Association’s Health Information Network (NEA HIN) - a US-based non-profit organization - will be the guest speaker attempting to provide an answer to that question from, 7:15 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Ballroom of the Schilling Community Center on Kadena.

DoDDS-Okinawa has invited Mr. Newberry to address parents on how to create a lasting 2-way communication with their children. According to the District Superintendent Steven Bloom, “this presentation will provide parents with a solid foundation on helping to establish the needed discussions that can assist our children in making appropriate choices in our very increasingly complex world.”

The Monday evening talk will emphasize the importance of the parents’ role in their children’s lives, as they face more, complex choices, and are confronted daily with mixed media messages and other extraneous influences. Through the use of a humorous cartoon, parents become comfortable talking to their children on touchy topics like puberty and sexuality, peer pressure, self-esteem and mixed media messages. Mr. Newberry’s “Can We Talk?” program has received wide echo within the United States, and was recently approved as the official parent education curriculum for all schools in the Dallas School System. His appearance at the Schilling Community Center on November 22nd will come just after DoDDS-Okinawa District and schools commemorate the American Education Week (November 14th-20th), a time to recognize the Military Community’s contribution to dependent education. For more information on Jerry Newberry’s presentation, call K. Kelley Germaine @ 634-1953.
