Great Lakes Center For Youth Development Encourages Active Family Thanksgiving
Paul Olson with the GLCYD
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Great Lakes Center For Youth Development is encouraging all involved with area youth to use Thanksgiving as a lesson about being thankful.
Paul Olson from the GLCYD visited the SUNNY Studios this morning to talk about the opportunity provided by the Thanksgiving holiday for adults to help youth develop their skills and esteem through organized involvement in the preparation and execution of holiday activities.
He suggested giving youth duties connected to the day’s events and making sure the kids understand the importance of times together with family and friends.
He also said one of the key steps in an effective youth developing activity is to have Thanksgiving dinner in a “technology-free” setting. In other words, turn off the cell phones, iPads and computers and spend the time around the dinner table face-to-face, enjoying and relishing each other’s company.
