Things That Make You Go Hmmm... Fielding your kids' difficult questions about bodies, relationships and sex (5 –13 years)Wed., Oct., 21, 7:00 – 9:00 pmHas your child recently had sex education at school, or are they about to have it? Are they starting to ask questions at home, or are they not talking to you about what they have learned at all? In this workshop you will discover effective ways to provide your kids with age-appropriate answers to potentially uncomfortable questions about our bodies, relationships and sex. We will discuss when to have these talks, how to prepare for them, and why open communication is beneficial as the teenage years are fast approaching.  With Torrey Freeman, MA.

Preschool and kindergarten are foundational years for children's social and emotional development, a time when children are learning how to manage and express their emotions, empathize with others, form friendships, and communicate with peers. It also may be a time when bullying behaviors first begin to surface, requiring early intervention to prevent them from continuing. With Andrea Travisano, MA. Fee $45.
