Video and online gaming have become common among kids, but when is it too much and when is it ok? This workshop will provide information and discussion about video-game use and addiction among kids.

March 10th and 11th Family Empathy Workshop – Jessica Klein
Social isolation, depression and anxiety have tripled since the eighties; and afflict children at younger ages. Empathy and trust are plummeting. Strong and caring relationships are scarce today—but remain vital for increasing well-being among youth and adults alike. Children need to develop empathy—so as to develop fulfilling and supportive connections with family, friends and others. Come and play new empathy games and practice playful empathy skills—and then share them with your children. This will help them build and develop the healthy and nurturing relationships we all need to thrive.
April 18th Picky Eaters – Amy Wilensky, at the Spring Wellness Fair
May 5th and 6th Eating and Body Image – Liz Cohen
We receive so many messages from the media, peers and family members about food and our bodies that it can often be hard to figure out what is the healthiest approach to take. Learning how to regulate our food intake and feel confident in our bodies is an essential skill for children to learn. Come and learn how we as parents can help support children in understanding caloric intake, healthy exercise, and realistic body image expectations. Come to our workshop on healthy eating and body image to help learn the best ways to nurture your child’s confidence.
