Brave New World: Helping Children Resolve Conflicts

When we help our children work through frustration, anger, conflict - we are helping them gain life skills.  When we support them, help them identify how they are feeling, provide outlets, offer choices, and set limits and natural consequences - we encourage our children to gain control.

Join in this conversation THIS Tuesday, April 21 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Augusta Elementary School.  Call the FRC to register.  Child care is available.
