Carol Otis Hurst's Parent Workshops


When Carol works with parent groups, she talks about storytelling as a means of communication and of passing on a sense of tradition and history through story. If the statistics we read so frequently in the press about the adult illiteracy in our country are true, we are blithely telling parents who cannot read that the way to increase their children's academic success is to read to them. If you cannot read, and read well, the last thing you are going to do is to let your children know it. Everybody, however, can reverse the current trend toward passive, one-way, television communication by talking and listening to each other and storytelling is one way to do it. In Carol's workshops with parents, she tells a few, teaches a few and suggests that this most enjoyable activity be continued.
