Actions and Detail Panel
What Makes A Great Ghanaian Parent?
Fri 28 April 2017, 18:30 – 21:30 BST
This meet-up examines the Ghanaian parenting experience, particularly in the context of the diaspora.
What was it like growing up? What did our parents get right or wrong for our development in the diaspora? What are Ghanaian and British/Western values, and how can they be balanced? How much of what we experienced should we keep, change or disregard, as we raise the next generation?
The evening will be split into three sections:
- Experiences / What was it like growing up as British Ghanaians? - We will share results of our pre-event survey. Providing context for our discussion and underlining its importance.
- Consequences / How much of what we experienced would we keep, change or disregard as we raise the next generation? - Select members of Star 100 will lead a group discussion about their experiences as children and how these are shaping their decisions as parents.
- Recommendations / How can you raise children to have the best of (Ghanaian) values (whilst living in the diaspora)? - Seth Tandoh (Founder, Coach Ghana and Lead Ghana) will share his thoughts on the evening’s conversations and provide practical parenting tips.
We have all been children plus they say it takes a village to raise a child, so come along and contribute to what should be a highly interesting and engaging event.
Light refreshments will be served.
