On Thursday, May 7 in the Glenbard South Little Theater,  Dr Paul Donahue concluded the 2008-2009 Glenbard parent-speaker series with a program entitled Daring to Care: Raising TODAY's Teens.

Our society encourages teenagers to focus on their academic, athletic and artistic achievements, but much less attention is given to helping them become good citizens.  Dr Donahue explained how adolescents’ self-esteem and sense of identity is defined in large part by how they treat others -- reviewing the research and practical implications of what it means to help teens develop empathy for their peers, classmates, and others in need and strategies for encouraging caring behaviors. Dr. Donahue also reviewed some of the hazards that teens face in the world of online communication and social networking sites such as Facebook. Dr. Paul J. Donahue is the author of Parenting Without Fear: Letting Go of Worry and Focusing on What Really Matters. Our speaker has been profiled by The New York Times and has appeared in the Washington Post, The Associated Press as well as on the CBS Early Show. Dr. Donahue is the director of Child Development Associates in Scarsdale NY. For a full program version contact Gilda Ross at or 630 942-7573.
