Thoughtful Parenting Community Discussion Series
Allen Creek Preschool hosts a series of evening of lectures and informal, open discussions, free and open to the community. Topics are generated from parent suggestions.
Thoughtful Parenting is an active stance toward parenting, empowering parents to be the kinds of parents they want to be. We help parents articulate their own values in child rearing and move toward actualizing these values, developing a sense of agency and joy in raising their children. All events are on Wednesdays from 8pm - 9pm.
Topics This Year Include
- TBD - Dr. Carole Symer
Wednesday, October, 9, 2013 from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm
As children get closer to school age, many parents start thinking about which of the many educational options make the most sense for their children. Join Dr. Carole Symer and William Purves for a conversation about what kinds of questions to ask, what the options are, what factors to consider, and the kinds of things to think about long and short term. Dr. Symer is a psychologist and child development specialist with many years of experience in this area, and William Purves is Director of Allen Creek Preschool and a former administrator at a number of area schools.
...Additional topics and dates are added throughout the school year.
