If you have been around Tapestry very long you know that we encourage parents to utilize a balance of structure and nurture in order to help our kids grow and heal. Nurturing and building connection with our kids is so much more than just giving hugs and kisses! It’s hard work, but it can also be fun and incredibly rewarding with children and teens alike…but you will need to get creative.
Join other moms and moms-to-be for a highly practical event that will offer a wide variety of age appropriate activities to help you nurture and build connection with children and teens. This event will be led by Amy Monroe and other moms from the Tapestry team. We will discuss some of the enemies of connection that we often encounter as moms, and then look at over 100 ways you can build connection with your child! These activities will be practical and easy to implement as soon as you get home!
There is no cost for this event and registration is not required (except for childcare as noted below). Dessert will be provided and training certificates will be available. We will also have a select number of books and other resources available for purchase.
Childcare is provided by IBC’s KidZone for ages 0 through 5th grade with online registration at least 72 hours in advance of the event. Space is limited. To register for KidZone click here and sign-in to your existing ibcLink account (or, if you don’t have one, follow the steps to create an account). You will register for the “Tapestry (4/15/14)” event.
