PEN is a great Boulder area resource! They offer free [or reasonably priced] workshops and lecture series. They often seem focused on tweens & teens, but for those of you with younger kids these topics will still apply and honestly it is never too early to start thinking about some of the issues on the horizon.
Here is the PEN calendar [some of these dates are long past]:
But PEN has some more great topics coming up:
1/16: Child safety in the digital age
1/22: High expectations [yes, it’s the high you are thinking]
I love how PEN works to support families and children in Boulder! Thanks, PEN!!!!
Take advantage of these! The Boulder Psychological Services offers some really incredible, free, lectures on essential parenting topics. Examples include:
- Technology’s Impact on Child Socialization
- Understanding and Dealing with Teen Depression
- Stress Reduction
- Understanding and Managing Sibling Rivalry
- Family Communication
- And lots, lots more!
There are relevant topics for every family and situation! Even if your child isn’t a teen yet, it’s never to soon to start thinking about what is coming up. If you have an infant you still might be interested in topics of stress reduction or understanding family communications.
I highly recommend taking advantage of these free discussions/lectures. They are led by experts in their fields and every one I have attended was worthwhile!
