 Parent Connection Event: 
Growing Up Brave

Join the Parent Connection for an evening with Dr. Donna Pincus, Director of the Child and Adolescent Fear and Anxiety Treatment Program at Boston University and author of Growing Up Brave. With stress and anxiety disorder now affecting one in eight children and anti-anxiety medications readily prescribed, parents often wonder how they can help their children manage daily stress and anxiety. 

Dr. Pincus gives step-by-step strategies for raising resilient, confident kids by sharing with parents key take-aways.... 

- how our own reactions influence our children's anxiety from pre-school to high school

- the progression of fear and anxiety, and how to prevent it from becoming clinical anxiety

- how to help children and adolescents develop a toolbox of coping skills for facing and overcoming fears

- the impact that social media and our competitive culture has on our kids

More Than Fun and Games 




We hope you are safe and healthy. What a month we've had here in the South Shore. We're sorry if any of you tried to shop during the week of the big storm, we were without power for 4 days. Not fun.


But we were still busy. Our trip to the NY Toy Fair was a big success. Get ready for tons of new games and toys hitting the shelves in the coming months.


And, Parents Night Out is returning with special guest David Dilley. See below for more details. 


Remember to make time to go out and play!

They were designed to strengthen the tripod grip muscles, preparing fingers and hands for handwriting. The shape allows small fingers to color in large, wide strokes creating pictures rich in color. A new favorite of ours and sure to fly off our shelves.
