Dads, please come together for our 9th Annual Fathers Forum hosted by Chris Theodoros, dad and Parents in Action board member.

This year, our panel of experts in education, sports, performing arts and emotional health will offer their insights and recommendations on how best to support your children through the uncertainties, the challenges and the achievements they will face on their paths toward success.

Delve into how your child’s goals and your vision align. Hear strategies that may help your kids refine and perhaps re-define their goals, and encourage them to maintain a healthy balance.

The program will conclude with a robust Q&A.

Be a “father in action” on March 7th at the Parents in Action Fathers Forum.

Dwight-Englewood school is proud to join this year as a member of PIA’s consortium of NYC based independent schools.

NYC-Parents in Action, Inc., a non-profit volunteer organization, is committed to the belief that effective communication, parent to parent and parent to child, is vital to the healthy development of young adults capable of making sound choices.

For over 35 years PIA has engaged with the NYC independent school community to offer education information and a communication network to inform parents about social and developmental issues from preschool through 12th grade.  With these tools PIA strives to help parents communicate openly and effectively with their children.

Parents in Action Programs

  1. Parent Talk – facilitated parent discussion groups provide platforms for parents to develop parent-to-parent and parent-to-child communication.  In safe, non-judgemental, confidential meetings, two professionally trained Facilitators encourage parents to share with other parents in their child’s grade their concerns, perspectives and strategies related to raising children in New York City and the surrounding suburbs.
  2. Seminars – are offered for parents and educators to learn from experts.  Seminars address such topics as child developments, parent-child relationships and communication, and technology and substance abuse prevention.

The website,, provides regularly updated content for parents with topical information and resources on a wide range of parenting topics.  The site offers a calendar of PIA events and registration capability for each.  The site also offers a comprehensive overview of NYC-{IA and events, summaries of past seminars and panels as well as a holst of articles from experts.
