Fontbonne Campus

Norwood-Fontbonne Academy welcomes Dr. Ken Ginsburg, who will be speaking on “Building Resilience in Children and Teens.”

Dr. Ginsburg will speak to the critical importance of parents in the lives of adolescents. It is the security of your love that allows young people to launch successfully into an uncertain future. It is your high expectations that hold them accountable, keeps them safe, and shapes them to become their best selves. It is your modeling of self-care and healthy stress management strategies that teaches them to get through tough times. Come to remind yourself how much you matter. If you have younger children, now is the time to invest in building wise, strong children who will thrive through adolescence and beyond.

Dr. Ginsburg is a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and co-founder and director of programs at Center for Parent and Teen Communication.

RSVP to Terri Hutsell, Associate Director of Donor and Community Engagement, at 215-247-3811, ext. 207, or thutsell@norfon.org.
