I am really looking forward to confirming with members of RSK Group that we will meet Feb. 19 at 2 pm. Can you please let me know?

We will be spending time talking about talking about feelings. There are some simple steps you can take to facilitate a discussion with your child about feelings — even feelings about difficult topics. This topic is important to reducing your child’s exposure to violence because most children do not report mild violence to anyone. They tend to keep it to themselves and try to manage their feelings alone. How do you stop something that you do not even know about?

In the brief workshop portion of our meeting we will practice the techniques of active listening and validation in ways that children understand. We will talk about extending a child’s knowledge of emotion and keeping the conversation going.

Please tell us if you can come. Kelly
