We have events for kids to learn about themselves, build character, and develop their talents. * Find out new ways to learn & grow * Move oneself towards better behaviors * Listen to positive examples from others This group is for parents & caregivers to expose their kids (& themselves) to some of the best & latest information on positive development, motivation, ethics, goal realization, and developing one's individual talents more fully & quickly. Initially targeting the challenges of tweens & teens, the group is open to different types of experiences. These will range from live events & workshops, to discussion groups, to field trips (parks, museums), all with the underlying theme of positive development & talent enrichment. The organizer runs other meetup groups totalling over 2,000 members, from creative areas (filmmaking, acting), to cultural and technical. We've made short movies, helped members network & meet new people, had presentation events for groups of 20 to over 100, and created communities that continue to reward the members with opportunities. Based on success setting up live events (for adults) to learn about the latest in technology from local & other expert speakers, we'll provide a forum for hearing & sharing from a variety of family-oriented topics to enrich the development of children. In the Increasing Kids Talent, Motivation & Growth group, we'll work together to build our part of an online & offline community to supportive people. If you're interested in helping out in any way, let the organizer know or leave a comment on your membership page/profile here. (If you want to speak at an event - to share a 5-minute story, tip, or to speak longer - also let us know.) If you find this group might be interesting to others, for membership or for speaking, please pass it on (thank you!). Some of the event will be broadcast "live" - so even if you live farther away or can't easily get away, join up and connect online.
