Sanford Health Hosts Parents' Summit

Posted:

Raising a child can be difficult, especially in our ever-changing world.

Sanford Health hosts it's first ever Parents' Summit.

Topics for this summit were chosen based on input from parents in the community.

The talks are given by providers and local organization leaders on bullying, social media, discipline, and video games...just to name a few.

Patti Flohr says as a parent of her 12 year old daughter, these topics are very eye opening and says it's important we learn how to keep your kids safe.

"It is all these different avenues that are open to our kids that we have no clue and we have to be aware. We have to be in tune to what they're working on, what they're dealing with," says Patty Flohr, Clinic Manager, Sanford Children's Clinics.

Flohr says although they had a small turn out today, the parents' summit is something they're hoping to have every year.
