  • Summer ECFE: How to Raise Joyful Children in a Stressful World

    Mixed Ages - Separating  Karen Pennaz, Orono ECFE Parent Educator, shares one of her favorite parenting books, The Happy Kid Handbook: How to Raise Joyful Children in a Stressful World by Katie Hurley. We all know that not every child is the same, and not every child will respond to parenting in the same way, which means we have to figure out how to parent each child as an individual. Yikes, that can be really hard in a world full of ideas of how we should be parenting. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to parenting, but in the end, we all want our children to be happy. Join Karen as she facilitates discussion helping to lead you to the be the best parent you can be.
  • Summer ECFE: Love & Logic Teaching Kids Responsibility

    Mixed Ages - Separating.  Ditch the nagging, drop the threats, and lose the stress: you can raise great kids with techniques that are practical, proven, and fun! Children learn the best lessons when they're given a task and allowed to make their own choices (and fail) when the cost of failure is still small. Children's failures must be coupled with love and empathy from their parents. Love and Logic uses humor, hope, and empathy to build up the adult/child relationship. It emphasizes respect and dignity for both children and adults, provides real limits in a loving way and teaches consequences and healthy decision-making. Back by popular demand!
