Dear friends, dialogue delegates and colleagues,
Our second dialogue of this series follows on from the first in September and we will stay with the theme of supporting the generations of the future – In this dialogue we will look at and consider the effects of ACE’s – Adverse Childhood Experiences on parenting – and how parenting impacts across generations.
The dialogue is on the 19th October (Thursday) at the West Marsh Community Centre.
Space is limited so please RSVP. Doors open 5.30pm
The inspiration for the series – ‘Fostering The Future’ – comes from two sources:- The work of the Creating Strong Communities – Families First program in North East Lincolnshire Council which is pioneering a unique and exemplary way of working that makes genuine difference to the lives of children. Also, inspiration comes from the pledge made by the Men of SGI-UK (Soka Gakkai International UK*) ‘to foster the youth’ – a pledge which is symbolised by the leaf of the Ginkgo tree – also called the grandfather grandchild tree because it takes two generations to bare it first flower. A symbol of the great care and patience that it takes to raise each child.
Finally, why dialogue? A dialogue is restorative in nature, imbued with the spirit of learning – it’s different from other types of meetings.. It is listening – A dialogue is a place to develop and grow and change oneself rather than a place to state a case or win an argument or change the ‘other’. Guidance notes are on the reverse of the flyer and there is a longer guidance sheet attached.
Please RSVP – Spaces are limited.

Very best wishes
