District to host parenting event with Mac Bledsoe

Parents will have an opportunity to participate in an event to learn how to instill positive behavior and good decision-making skills in their children with the Parenting With Dignity dinner and presentation on Oct. 14 at Pendleton High School. The event is presented by Parenting With Dignity’s founder and CEO, Mac Bledsoe, father of retired NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe.

Mac Bledsoe and his wife, Barbara, have spoken with parents from all over the country for the past 20 years about the Parenting With Dignity program, which is a result of the generosity from the Drew Bledsoe Foundation. The program helps disseminate information to parents on all aspects of raising children capable of making responsible decisions. The program’s mission is to improve the lives of children by promoting and teaching effective parenting skills.

The Parenting With Dignity curriculum presents effective techniques for raising responsible, independent children, and advocates permitting children to make some of their own decisions and experience the consequences of them early on. Parenting With Dignity teaches parents to rethink their approach to discipline, punishment and empowerment.

The event on Oct. 14 begins with dinner at 6 p.m. in the PHS Commons, followed by the presentation in the PHS Auditorium. Tickets are $20 per family for dinner and the presentation, and are available now at any Pendleton school or at Dave’s Chevron. Free childcare will be provided.

The event is sponsored by the Pendleton School District, 92.1 KUMA, and Vision Source Pendleton.
