Monthly Seasonal Workshops & Events

Opportunities to Encourage Sharing

“Me” and “Mine” are among the earliest words spoken by toddlers. Sharing, on the other hand, is a social skill that takes time to develop. Join Sunny Crandell, local SBCC Parent Education Instructor & Director of the Oaks Parent-Child Workshop to explore effective parenting strategies that support the development of sharing and turn-taking.

Thursday, Mar. 5th, 6-7pm, Free, Sign-up!
