Everyone knows that Halloween is a great time for family fun and bonding, but October 31st is more than just dressing up and getting candy. It's a time to celebrate our community and creativity.

When we carve pumpkins and decorate our homes, we strengthen our relationships and make lasting memories. Studies even show that when kids choose their costumes, they feel more confident and creative. Best of all, trick-or-treating helps boost social skills!

So, have a blast, stay safe, and cherish these special family moments!

Save the Date: Saturday, October 21st, from 9am to noon.

All are welcome to enjoy snacks and crafts. Come by and spend time with your family, other Parent Support Department families, and our team!

Are you interested in getting a professional family photo at the event? We are currently on a waitlist. Please add your name to it here, and we will call the week of the event should we have a spot for you.

Dealing with Disobedience

Join one of three Triple P Discussion Groups throughout October.

This month's discussion group delves into the topic of disobedience. We'll be providing examples of common forms of disobedience and some reasons why some children have more difficulty learning to follow instructions.

Several positive parenting strategies are then introduced to help parents develop a personal plan to prevent disobedience, teach their children limits, and manage disobedience when necessary.
