Tell it to Me Straight Dinner

The Dell Rapids Connections Group is presenting an event titled “Tell It To Me Straight Dinner” on Wednesday, May 7th, at 6:00 p.m. at Old 77..  Who should attend this event?? Parents, guardians, aunts, uncles, grandparents or anyone who is helping to guide kids through the everyday struggles of becoming an adolescent.

In addition to enjoying the great food – please join us at Old  77 for an opportunity to hear from teenagers answering honest questions and giving suggestions on how to have conversations with your teen.

The “Tell It To Me Straight” event is an opportunity for parents to set aside their responsibilities, enjoy a free catered meal, and visit with other parents facing the challenges of raising teens today. It is one of the toughest things  you will have to do but the reality is that your child is maturing and the pressures seem to be everywhere. This program will allow you to ask real questions and hear ideas through teens’ eyes on when, how, and what approach to take with teens.

Attending this educational event is free of cost and includes a catered meal. It is necessary to RSVP – if you would like to attend or have additional questions please contact Tiffany Butler at 605-275-1304 soon as this event is quickly approaching.
