WBTY Teen Retreat
Organized by Wilshire Boulevard Temple
November 5-7, 2021
We teach our children to walk, to swim, and to look both ways...now it’s time to teach them the importance of how to be in a healthy relationship, and other essential life skills.
Facilitated by Amy and Dr. Charles Miron, teens explore the complexity of the often-conflicting feelings and messages that naturally arise in peer relationships. At the core of this program are open and honest discussions about relationship dynamics, sex, emotional and physical safety.
After participating in the retreat, teens report that the topics and questions they explored positively impacted their life decisions.Whether they go willingly or grudgingly, by the end of the first night, each and every teen participant reports that the experience was not at all what they anticipated and had a profoundly positive and significant impact on their thinking
Amy and Dr. Charles Miron, a Baltimore-based husband and wife team, are sexuality and relationship educators and certified sex therapists who have been working in the field of sexuality for more than three decades. They are the co-authors of How To Talk With Teens About Love, Relationships, and S-E-X: A Guide for Parents. The Mirons team-teach college courses along with facilitating sexuality education retreats and workshops for parents and teens. Always respectful of diverse family values, their relaxed and entertaining style quickly puts both parents and teens at ease in this difficult area. The Mirons have appeared on numerous television and radio programs and their friendly faces have been found on the pages of many publications
