Parent Effectiveness Program/PEP Talk

Dear Petrides Parents,

 

“Parenting isn’t a practice.  It’s a daily learning experience.”

 

We are excited to bring back our Parent Effectiveness Program!  P.E.P. is a bi-weekly workshop series based on The Parent’s Handbook by Don Dinkmeyer and Gary McKay.   This 10 session series will feature lectures and discussion groups led by Marie Biancaniello, our School Psychologist.  Participants will receive workbooks and other materials to practice with at home.   Each workshop will last approximately 45 minutes.  (See back for workshop schedule.)

 

This year, we will enhance our adult learning offerings with the addition of PEP TALK.  This bi-weekly workshop will be designed to include topical discussion of relevant issues, and will include featured guests and special guest facilitators.  These sessions will be custom designed based on your input and interest.

 

Being an effective parent is one of the most rewarding tasks in life and also one of the most challenging!   These parenting support groups will help you sort through all the conflicting theories of child training to find strategies that work for you. 

 

Please confirm your interest in participating (in either, or both workshop series) by completing and returning the tear off below. 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Joanne Buckheit

Principal
