Why are life skills important to a child's social and emotional well-being?
What life skills can we teach our kids at different ages?
How can we provide children with the tools they need to become resilient, confident, and independent ?
Join us for an informative evening with open, honest dialogue and important tools for success.
On June 3rd, Old Saybrook Early Childhood Council will host Modern Parenting: Life Skills for Our Kids with Betsy Groth, APRN and Samantha Steinmacher, LPC (OSYFS Clinician).
This class teaches parents how to provide their young children with a strong foundation of self-efficacy, confidence, and healthy independence through age-appropriate life skills.
Parents will learn why, how, and what to teach their kids (ages 3-12) about basic life skills, including emotional regulation, stress management, time and money management, decision making, problem solving,
chores, self-care, and interpersonal skills. Tools for effective parent-child communication and information about child development will also be provided.
Registration is required, and free childcare is available with advanced notice.
