Colorado State University Hosts Community Lecture on How to Raise Strong and Sensitive Girls and Boys

Colorado State University will host a lecture Dec. 14 on raising strong and sensitive girls and boys as part of its "Families at Five" series, a program designed to help community members enhance family relationships.

The presentation will be given by Toni Zimmerman, professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and director of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Colorado State. The workshop is fun and practical and will teach parents how to raise children in a way that is conscious of gender stereotypes. Zimmerman will discuss how to encourage children to reach their fullest potential while respecting their individual differences.

The event is free and will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Room 113 of the Gifford Building on campus, 502 W. Lake St. Parking for the event is free in the "A" lot to the west of the Gifford Building.

Children can attend the presentation with their parents or they can participate in a free children’s program. The children’s programs for ages 3-11 will be centered on the theme, "I Am Strong and Sensitive!"

The program is sponsored by the Colorado State University Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic within the College of Applied Human Sciences.
