Funny side of parenting topic of March 31 virtual talk put on by French Catholic board | #parenting

Actor and public speaker Martin Larocque ‘will take a realistic, amusing and serious look at parenthood’

With the intention to support families during this pandemic, the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon Parents’ Participation Committee will offer families a comedy talk as well as techno-educational workshops. 

In light of the important contributions of parents to the learning and well-being of students, these activities aim to strengthen their engagement and encourage their participation in the education of their children. 

This program will kick off on Wednesday, March 31, at 6.30 p.m., with Martin Larocque’s presentation entitled “La famille, mieux vaut en RIRE!” (Family, Better to Laugh About It!). This free presentation will be broadcast on Zoom.

Larocque will take a realistic, amusing and serious look at parenthood. 

In his presentation, he will highlight the ups and downs of this role which is so difficult to define. According to Larocque, the parent-child relationship is such an enjoyable yet exhausting role that makes us do totally surreal things at times. A role where love, doubt, guilt and instinct come together every hour.

Larocque, an actor and father of three boys, is a speaker specializing in family communication, empowerment and self-esteem. 

The author of three books on paternity published at Éditions de la Bagnole (Papa par-ci, papa par-là, Papa pure Laine and Papa 24/7), Larocque is also a radio columnist who is appreciated for his participation in movies and television series sur as District 31 and Virginie.

Martin Larocque’s presentation is offered exclusively at no cost to families and staff members of the CSC Nouvelon. To register, visit or phone 705-673-5626 or 1-800-259-5567.

In April, the CSC Nouvelon will also offer a series of techno-educational workshops that will assist and equip families to support their children in learning. 

These virtual workshops will cover the following topics: Parent Portal (April 7), Microsoft Teams (April 21) and Technology Helping tools (April 28).
