Parent-Child Communication: Keeping the Lines of Communication Open
Parenting is a tough job, especially when juggling the multiple demands of our busy lives. Staying closely connected to our children can seem like a daunting task. How can we keep the lines of communication open between us and our children?

The key lies in the art of listening. Through a unique blend of storytelling and simple strategies, Jennifer Kennett, owner of Eastside Family Counseling will cover topics including:
· Effective communication skills, including listening, empathy, and reflection
· Recognizing the opportunities to connect with your child as they arise
· How to avoid road blocks to communication
· Understanding different communication styles

You will come away with a better appreciation for how to listen so your child will talk, and how to talk so your child will listen!

Date: 2/26/2014
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Location: Peter Kirk Library
Speaker: Jennifer Kennett
RSVP: margo.wei@gmail.com
