3/25/17 – Better Kid Care: Parental Resilience, 8:30 – 10:30 AM, Wayne/Pike Workforce Alliance, 92 Main Avenue, Hawley, PA 18428. Fee: $7. No one can eliminate stress from parenting, but a parent’s capacity for resilience can affect how a parent deals with stress. Resilience is the ability to manage and bounce back from all types of challenges that emerge in every family’s life. It means finding ways to solve problems, building and sustaining trusting relationships including relationships with your own child, and knowing how to seek help when necessary. Pre-registration, including payment, is required by March 23. For more information visit the PA Keys website at https://www.pakeys.org/pages/get.aspx to register.

Networks of support are essential to parents and also offer opportunities for people to “give back”, an important part of self-esteem as well as a benefit for the community.
