Love & Limits Monthly Discussion November 11

Parents and caregivers are invited to join monthly gatherings to discuss parenting and child development. Last month we had a lovely discussion, informed by topics that individual parents brought to the table. There is no “presentation” component to these gatherings. It is simply a chance to gather with other parents, sip tea and talk about ideas, challenges and successes related to parenting.

Saturday November 11
Manson’s Hall
10:30am – 12:00pm
Please RSVP for childcare by donation at cortesfsc@gmail.com or 935-8558.

Dayna Davis will facilitate discussion based on questions and interests of those in attendance. Some possible areas of focus may be be discipline, screen time, play, bedtime and eating challenges, anxiety and bullying.

Dayna Davis has 30 years experience working with children. She has been offering Love and Limits parenting classes for 3 years and is a student in the Facilitation Training Program at The Neufeld institiute. She brings an attachment / developmental based approach to parenting and working with children.

Lunch Talk – Including All Kids in Play

TOOLS FOR INCLUDING ALL KIDS IN PLAY

Some kids need more help than others to show up as their best selves in programs, play & recreation – sometimes appearing withdrawn or reluctant,  sometimes appearing to ‘act out’.   Join Quadra Island’s Maureen Fox for practical and proven tools and tips to include all kids in play.

Maureen Fox has worked as a Speech/Language Pathologist, an educator, and a consultant for people with neurological differences for the past 25 years.  Her passion is sharing information about the brain’s role in how we learn and grow – so that communities can celebrate diversity and find ways to support all people to reach their potential.

Friday, May 12th, 11:00 – 1:00
Pioneer Room, Mansons Hall
Bring your own lunch. 

For parents and anyone who cares for or works with children.
For more info or to RSVP for childcare contact CCHA Family Support Program: cortesfsc@gmail.com.
