A few years ago I attended a work-related conference, at which time I sat through a talk geared toward speaking to other professionals and adults. As I listened to this talk, I realized that so much of the information given was extremely similar to what we discuss on a daily basis at WFP. This experience, among others, has left me with the realization that what we learn at WFP transcends beyond our children as youths, but also nourishes their growth toward their own successful and respectful adult relationships. Not to mention that this information is directly applicable to our own current adult relationships. So with this brief introduction, I give you Parents Connect 2018!
One way WFP supports our parenting journey is through the constant availability of literature, teacher and peer parent support, and speaking events. Coming up, on March 21st is an example of such events. This year, Juliette Skoog will be speaking at the annual Parents Connect event at Shoreline Community College. Juliette Skoog is a Certified Positive Discipline Advanced Trainer and Educator with an Ed.S Degree in School Psychology and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Seattle University. Positive Discipline, brain research, and mindfulness are the foundation of all her work. In this talk Juliette will discuss brain development in the first five years of life and how to optimize this development in young children to grow capability and cooperation. She will also help parents understand the WHY behind challenging behavior. Her goal is for the parent is to leave with immediately applicable tips and tricks that can be used every day.
I hope you will join us for this event, on March 21st at the Shoreline Community College PUB 9000. Parking for the event is free and don’t forget to pick up your Shoreline Community College student ID while you are already there. Let us journey together!
