Our much-anticipated first PTSA-sponsored parent education event for the year is coming up on Thursday, November 17. It will be an evening of great advice, lively interaction, connecting with other QAE parents, and delicious refreshments.
"Supporting Your Child's Social-Emotional Learning", Presented by Sarah L. Palmer, MA, LMHCA
As parents we want the best for our children. We want them to be happy, respected, respectful, independent, and loved. We want our children to be successful, do well in school, and not get hurt. Yet many of us discover that these goals are harder to achieve than we imagined.
The foundation to our children’s emotional and social health begins with a strong and secure attachment to us--their parents or primary caregivers. Within the context of this connected relationship we can directly affect our children’s ability to handle disappointment, loss, frustration, challenges at school, and hurt feelings. In this talk we will explore the building blocks of resilience and look at how we as parents help our children cope with adversity and learn from mistakes and failure.
Date: Thursday, November 17
Time: Talk and Q&A: 7:00pm – 8:30pm (refreshments and mingling will begin at 6:30 and resume after the presentation)
