Some 80 Korean American parents participated in seminars this month to learn more about how they can better interact with their children, manage their anger, and broach difficult topics.

The seminars were hosted by Korean American Family Services (KFAM), which offers counseling, foster, and adoption services among others, and took place on June 9 and 11 at Oriental Mission Church (OMC) in Los Angeles.

The seminar on June 9 focused on advising parents how to talk with their child, and to control their anger. The speakers helped parents to understand where their anger may be stemming from, and to more effectively communicate with their children.

On June 11, speakers helped guide parents in how to broach difficult topics. For instance, with the topic of sex, the experts advised parents to consider the developmental stage that their children are in when approaching the topic, and shared some points that they should remember for each developmental stage.

“KFAM will continue to host more seminars for Korean American parents, and will strive to help Korean American children and youth to be able to grow in healthy families,” the organization stated.
