I got home a little bit ago from Family Night. Our center helps with these monthly events during the school year. They are hosted at different area churches and the families have a free meal, the. The children g off to play and the parents here a presentation, as I type this I realize I’ve already talked about these when I told you about my doomed sweater.
Well, I was wearing a different sweater tonight, and I wasn’t with the children. Instead I heard Carrie Gottschalk speak on Typical Behaviors of Children, and I just have to say, if you are local to Seward and ever have a chance to hear her, DO IT.
She speaks to how unwanted behavior means the kid lacks the skills to do the right thing. you have to…… never mind. I can’t oppour all the good information out of my tired brain right now.
She is wise. She is full of information. But best of all, she is funny. Not like ‘I’m a comedian’ funny, but in an ‘I’m a mom so I have real stories that back me up and I know what you’re going through, amiright?’ way. I just love her. At the end of her hour with us we all wanted her to go on.
I took copious notes to share with parents who couldn’t attend. If I get them written up, I’ll share them tomorrow.
What did you do Tuesday evening?
