Confident Parenting: Speaker Series     FREE!
For parents, caregivers and adults who work with children    

Parenting today is not easy or simple.  Since the early years of a child’s life are the most important for their development, parents want to do the best they can for their children but they may not always know how to do that.  This introductory lecture series is the first stop for parents to get an understanding of best practices for parenting young children. Presented in an engaging manner by professionals who really care about kids and families.

Adults only, no registration required.  All Confident Parenting programs take place in the Eisenhower Room

Monday, February 22, 7 - 8:30 p.m.
Mariposa Center for Infant, Child and Family Enrichment Ask an Expert: A Conversation with a Child Development Specialist

Have you ever wondered if your child is “where they should be?” Are they meeting their milestones? When should you be concerned? Who should you talk to if you are concerned? And, most            importantly, how can you help them meet their milestones?  This training will go over those developmental milestones and teach you how to effectively assist your child along the way. We will also cover “red flags” and where to go and what to do if you have   concerns. This is your chance to ask all your questions to a child development specialist.
Taught by Jennie Harrison, MS, CIMI, CLE
