Group.of.friends.diversity.1.jpgConfident 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.
Monday, October 19, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. 
In the Eisenhower Room.  Adults only.  No registration required

The Power of Touch for Children – Touch is one our most powerful senses. Often, it communicates more than words. Touch not only makes us feel loved and connected to one another, but it has the power to draw out the introverted child, make a teenager feel more confident, promote healing during hospitalization, and elicit a sense of peace and security in the midst of any stressful or traumatic experience. We all need touch, but for children, it is a vital part of their well-being. Join Michele Belcher, certified pediatric massage therapist and founder of Kids 'n Touch as she discusses the physiological, emotional and relational benefits of pediatric massage and how it can help children live happier, healthier lives.  Michele Belcher, CMT, CIMI; the Mariposa Center for Infant, Child, and Family Enrichment.
