In this space it was explained that these groups seek to align learning at home with what is taught in the school’s group tutoring sessions, covering fundamental topics such as the formation of the will, authority with love, and the appropriate use of digital screens .

Sofía Rospigliosi, one of the participating mothers, expressed her satisfaction with the meeting: “I like that we are forming a community of parents, formed in values and that we are willing to relearn to always provide the best to our children.”

“What I liked most about this experience was that the memories and teachings of our parents towards us emerged, and that we can rescue the same values without being influenced by passing trends of the moment,” said Sofía.

While teacher Rebeca Ramos, Pre Kindergarten tutor, shared that the second edition of the Parent Meeting has been a rewarding and enriching space in her teaching work. “Working with parents, throughout our guiding role, is a fundamental basis for supporting their children.
