FROM THE HEART         NEWS FROM KIDS FIRST SEPTEMBER 2015

Greetings to our friends and supporters,       

 

I promise not to say anything about summer winding down!  Instead, here at Kids First we are looking forward to September and all the great programs scheduled for the fall season.  New sessions of our after-school support groups for kids will start up mid-month - some space is still available in those, so spread the word!  We have a brand new September evening workshop entitled "Your Brain on Divorce," and our annual fall conference, "Staying on the Cutting Edge: Kids First from 1988 to 2015" is shaping up to be a big draw in October as well.

 

Check out our schedule below for details, and we hope to see or hear from many of you soon!

 

Sincerely,

Peg Libby

Executive Director

Parenting Only Children After Divorce

By Samantha Rodman PhD

 

Divorce may be particularly difficult for only children.  This is true for children without any siblings as well as virtual only children, those who are separated by seven or more years from their closest sibling.  Children with special-needs siblings can also feel like only children, particularly if the sibling is unable to engage interpersonally.
