Small Hands… Big Difference

Monday, January 20
10-11:30 a.m.

They may be little, but your pre-schoolers can make a BIG difference!  Small Hands…Big Difference will bring our community’s youngest social activists together for an opportunity to answer Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s challenge that we “do something for others.” Join us for a morning of song and movement (with Rhythm & Ruach), social action, a PJ Library station and the chance to get a little messy too.

RSVP here or email Patty with questions.

 

Feelings!

A 3-part parent-child workshop
Facilitated by Leah Frankel, MSW, LCSW, CLC
Clinical Therapist and Parent Educator at Mirowitz

  • February 23 (10-11 a.m.) @ Mirowitz (348 S. Mason Road  63141)

Children who are able to identify and express their feelings are more likely to build emotional resilience, show empathy to others, and have a positive self-concept. Come learn how you can help your children thrive through their many feelings. Join us for one or all sessions.

  • Session 1: Feeling Powerful: Your child’s growing autonomy is both important and complicated. Come learn tools that will help your child gain independence and confidence while also enhancing cooperation at home.
  • Session 2: Feeling Healthy: Learn a few mealtime magic tricks, and turn common concerns into opportunities to teach healthy eating habits.
  • Session 3: Feeling Playful:  Learn how joining your children in their world of play reduces stress, promotes bonding, and increases joy.

The first 30 minutes: Parent learning while children enjoy supervised activities.  The second 30 minutes: Applying what we’ve learned in a parent-child activity.
