FROM THE HEART         NEWS FROM KIDS FIRST November 2012 

Greetings to our friends and supporters,      

 

I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our speakers at last week's Annual Fall Conference ("The Perils of Virtual Venom") for the great job they all did educating our audience about the pitfalls as well as the perks of the role of social media in the lives of families of divorce and separation. Annette T. Burns, Esq. our keynote speaker from Arizona, and our panel members Justice MaryGay Kennedy, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Diaz, and Dana Prescott, Esq., LMSW together gave a thorough presentation that engaged participants in a lively discussion of how to legally, ethically and responsibly navigate the complex world of online communication.

DIVORCE BRINGS CREATIVE HOLIDAY CHANGE

As the holiday season approaches, Kids First has had requests to re-run an article that we used last year at this time, written by a parent who had attended one of our programs.  This divorced parent put a great, positive spin on facing the challenges of spending a holiday without the children  - take a page from this playbook and remember, real holidays with your child happen when you make them!

HOLIDAY TIPS 
And while we're at it, if you like lists, here are some great tips we've come up with to help you through the next few months.
