Pair of programs to give parental guidance

November 19, 2013 by  

Two events are scheduled to take place this week aimed at helping parents

First up, parents can check to see if their car seats are installed properly at a safety check on tomorrow at St. Mary Medical Center, 1201 Newtown Langhorne Road in Langhorne, which is less than a 20-minute drive from Ewing.

Beginning at 3:00 pm, safety technicians will teach parents how to correctly install their child’s car seat in the car. This is a free event for parents and caregivers of young children.

Parking is available in front of the child care center, and the check will take place at the parenting center across from the emergency department. To preregister, or for more information, call (267) 426-5714 or Bucks County Safe Kids at (215) 710-7078.

Following this, on Thursday, parents can learn how to deal with challenging behaviors in children.

This is an interactive program covering children from birth to three years of age. Instructors will teach how to use such intervention as visual strategies, positive communication, and social scripts to perform effectively when children are displaying such behavior.

The workshop will be led by Kate Gara and Roseann Adamo, who have more than 30 years’ experience in early intervention. It begins at 12:30 pm at the Cherry Hill Public Library, 1100 Kings Highway North in Cherry Hill.

Since printed information can be taken home and digested, brochure printers are often a good resource when presenting information to the public at sessions like these.
