On Thursday, October 29th, parents of seniors joined their children for a special breakfast at the Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School. Our annual Parent-Senior Breakfast was attended by well over 150 parents, who joined their children for a morning of good food and inspiration. Following the breakfast, parents and children were greeted by Dean of Students, Rabbi Naftali Besser, and heard from a YOFHS graduate, Victoria Twito (HS '13) about her experience transitioning from high school to young adulthood, followed by a short film.
Later, parents and students attended separate interactive sessions, giving them the opportunity to exchange ideas on various topics related to the evolution of the parent-child relationship during this time of transition. Themes included trust, independence, responsibility, and communication within families as children head off to college and allowed each side to hear about important topics from different perspectives. Parents then had the opportunity to reconnect with their children over coffee and pastries before parting ways.
