Upcoming "From Chaos to Calm" presentation to provide parenting techniques for all families

Family eating breakfast together at home. All of these snow days and busy schedules certainly have an impact on family routine and dynamics. Are you looking for some fun techniques to create calm in your home?

The Anoka-Hennepin Community Education adult learning program and Anoka-Hennepin Parent Involvement will offer an interactive presentation next Thurs., Feb. 28, entitled, "From Chaos to Calm - Creating Peace in the Home," at the Anoka-Hennepin Schools Educational Service Center in the Staff Development Center located at 2727 N. Ferry Street in Anoka.

"Community Education aims to share lifelong learning opportunities with adults - and family classes and parenting topics are often requested to support our school communities," said Noella Fath-Cutter, adult learning coordinator. "By partnering with Anoka-Hennepin Parent Involvement, we hope families can add a few useful tools and techniques to their everyday routine to create more positive, supportive interactions at home."

Participants will explore parenting strategies and experience the benefits of using movement and relaxation - along with specific instruction on how and when to use them throughout the day. Families will discover practical tips/routines so you can enjoy spending time together and shift chaos to calm.

"Anoka-Hennepin Parent Involvement promotes partnerships, based on the belief that parents are their children's most important teacher," explained Liz Burgard, Parent Involvement coordinator. "This opportunity is just one of the many resources that we offer throughout the year to support families in their goals for their children at home and at school."

Families may register online to attend, and a discount is offered if you bring a spouse, co-parent or friend. Cost is $15 for one participant, and $25 for two participants. Register online to join us.
