For this week, imagine that you have been contacted by a local school to present

For this week, imagine that you have been contacted by a local school to present a seminar for parents. Your seminar should be entitled,
“Promoting Positive Development: What Can a Parent Do?”
In this seminar, you will want to provide concrete tips for parents that reflect the latest research findings on promoting positive development in children OR adolescents.
Create an outline for the seminar of the topics you will cover and the tips you will provide; make sure to include information for each domain (physical, cognitive, and psychosocial) as well as theories to help parents understand their role in development. Also include information about parenting styles, and at least one activity for those in attendance to engage in that is about parenting styles (this could be an activity to determine their parenting styles; a role play that allows them to see different parenting styles respond to a specific scenario, etc).
You must also create handout(s) to give to the parents who attend your seminar. This can be a brochure, a resource guide, an annotated bibliography; whatever you believe would be most useful for parents who are looking for information on promoting development in their children.
Support your seminar with at least five references from research conducted in the past 5 years. If you cannot find recent research in the library, consider sources such as the American Psychological Association (APA) and other reliable sources. Remember that many websites are not scholarly sources and should be used sparingly and in addition to scholarly sources. Be sure the information gathered from websites is from a reputable organization such as the APA versus someone’s blog on parenting. Remember that anyone can publish anything online and what you may find on non-scholarly websites may be loaded with opinion and not based on research or evidence.
Length: 5 pages total (3-4 pages for seminar outline, 2-3 pages for the handout), not including title and reference pages
References: Include a minimum of five scholarly resources.
Your seminar and handout(s) should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect graduate-level writing and APA standards.
