Parents as Partners Academic Center’s Father & Son Retreat reinforces a crucial family bond

Earlier we wrote about the Mother & Daughter Retreat, courtesy of the Parents as Partners Academic Center (housed at Kennedy Middle School). We also thought we’d share some images from the Father & Son Retreat, which sought to strengthen a key relationship for APS’ male students. Fathers and sons participated in a range of activities, including distinguishing the difference between a “citizen” dad and a “tourist” dad; a skin-care session courtesy of Kim Gilmore, JAFRA Cosmetics Consultant during the “Masculine Maintenance” session; and “He Ain’t Heavy,” a trust-building exercise; and the “Trust Walk,  in which fathers and sons took turns using blindfolds and guiding each other through hallways.
