2019-20 Parent Ed Series

Once again, we’re offering a series of four parent education evenings. These evenings are presented by SYC teachers, the topics below.  We’re excited about this series and there is no cost for current SYC adults to attend.

Wednesday, October 23 – 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Strong Emotions: Kids have a lot of them.  We’ll discuss how to let kids have them without being drawn into those feelings ourselves.

Tuesday, October 29 – 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Separation in the Age of Attachment: Separation is hard for everyone! We will discuss the challenges of difficult separation between parents and children, and behaviors associated with separation anxiety within the classroom and home. We will introduce skills and strategies to ease in the separation from parents in the school and childcare environment.  Easing separation difficulties among children and helping them manage discomfort in the end builds resilience and self-efficacy.   ** Note:  This Parent Ed is adapted from a professional presentation that Dawn and Susan will be presenting at Columbus State and at a conference in December, including photos and visuals

Wednesday, November 13 – 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Discipline and communicating values through the limits we set: We\’ll talk about organizing your thoughts and actions as they relate to guiding your child\’s behavior.  Our hope is that you can create a vision that allows you to feel less like you\’re putting out fires and more like your discipline is contributing to lifelong learning

Tuesday, February 25 – 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Your child\’s emotional health: Talking openly and honestly about sex and death.

Cost:   Free for current SYC families. $10/adult for each session for non-SYC families.

Child Care: Limited child care will be offered to current SYC families first and then, if space allows, non-SYC families. Parent Ed childcare is for children aged 2 – 7 years old for $8 per child, if we have a minimum of five children registered in advance.  Advance registration is required for child care (no refunds unless child care is cancelled due to low enrollment). Register early because it will fill up fast.
