Moms Club will host their first annual workshop on March 15 from 3 to 5 pm at the Garden Theater located in Midtown. The workshop topic: “Teaching our children about self-esteem, self-image and peer pressure,” will be conducted by licensed therapist, adjunct professor and performing arts coach Loretta Morman, and author, international speaker, college professor, mentor, political advisor, teacher and radio and TV correspondent on CBS/CW 50, Dr. Eddie Connor Jr.

“Today’s alarming data in youth suicide is not only scary but detrimental to our youth. Society and media make it very difficult for children to understand who they are. It is our job as parents to be our children’s first source of reinforcement,” said Moms Club founder Jessica Byrd. “We must really cultivate our children’s feelings. It takes more than the schools, it starts at their toddler years.”

Dr. Eddie Connor Jr. will speak to mothers with sons about what it means to be an African-American male in today’s forever changing society. Morman will work closely with mothers with daughters regarding social comparison and self-image. This is a free workshop, but you must RSVP to attend. They should be submitted to mrsjessicamarieb@gmail.com
