FROM THE HEART         NEWS FROM KIDS FIRST FEBRUARY 2015

Greetings to our friends and supporters,       

 

Valentine's Day...if you are part of a step-family, what better way to say 'I love you' on that special day than to attend a program dedicated to helping you smooth out those rough patches that blending families can create, and commit to everyone's happiness?  The Kids First Program for Stepparents is scheduled for Saturday, February 14, and we'd love to see you there!

 

We've also got a great evening workshop scheduled (coming right up on Monday, February 2nd) focusing on Separation, Divorce & the Very Young Child.  Parents and professionals are welcome.

 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and enjoy this winter wonderland while it lasts!

 

Sincerely,

Peg Libby

Executive Director

'Boyhood' Shows How to Put Kids First During Divorce

Breakups happen, but when Mom and Dad cooperate as parents, kids can do more than survive

by Mary M. Swann, Associate Director, Kids First Center
  

If you are divorced, or a child of divorce, I strongly recommend that you see the movie 'Boyhood.'  A beautiful coming-of-age film charting a young boy's life from first grade to college, this movie - which won three Golden Globe awards recently, including best drama - tackle's some of life's heaviest issues in a refreshingly matter-of-fact style that will leave you breathing a sigh of relief.
