The following virtual presentation is open to any parent/guardian who would like to attend.
The Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) is hosting a presentation entitled How to Talk to Your Kids and Survive on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. Presentation will be held virtually beginning at 6:00pm. Below are details on the presentation and the link to attend. No registration is required.
How to Talk to Your Kids and Survive: In today’s world, trends move faster than we
realize, and children are often more up to date than parents. This workshop is for parents
and caregivers to learn best practices for how to talk to children about anything and
everything. Parents and caregivers will also learn how their own behaviors impact their
children’s mental wellness, such as using cell phones. Parents will feel energized to go
home and start talking.
