Parents advised to raise empowered kids

Best-selling author/speaker and weekly columnist for the Washington Times, Marybeth Hicks will address issues about popular culture, media, values and the trends that influence the next generation and are shaping our nation’s future.

Hicks provides a strong voice for parents, grandparents and concerned citizens who want to protect our children and the country they will inherit by promoting the values and virtues that have made our nation exceptional. She speaks from the heart and from experience, sharing both the poignant and hilarious moments that punctuate family life as well as timely observations about the political and cultural landscape that all Americans should know.

“Today’s parents must be brave parents and stand up to the relentless pressure to be politically correct,” said Hicks.

Hicks’ presentation, “Parenting Fourth through Eighth Graders—How to Raise Genuine, Enthusiastic, Empowered Kids in Today’s Grow-Up-Too-Fast World,” will be held at the Family Life Center, 6390 Belmont Ave. NE, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20. Following the presentation, there will be refreshments and books available for sale, including Hicks’ latest, “Don’t Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid—Confronting the Left’s Assault on Our Families, Faith, and Freedom.”
