ASK THE EXPERTS… 
FOR PARENTS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN
Monday, Dec. 1, 11:30am-12:30pm
 
Come with your parenting questions about your school-age child(ren).  The format for this workshop is Q&A only and will not include a formal presentation.  The number of participants will be ket small to insure that your questions will be answered.  
 
Some questions we often hear about school-age kids:
  • How do I avoid homework battles?
  • How do I help my child navigate socially?
  • To punish or not to punish? What kinds of consequences really work?
  • How do we prepare our child for transitions (vacations, birth of a sibling, back to school)?
  • What should I expect at this age?
We invite you to come with your own questions or piggy back on these!  $35/participant
