Effective parenting promotes age-appropriate problem-solving. The coping skills that enable problem-solving unfold in normal developmental cycles. At each stage of a child’s development, new challenges create struggle that ignites new abilities. Sometimes, this growth enables the child to connect more successfully with others. Other times, kids are empowered to explore and learn. As they test their limits, an increased capacity for self-control evolves. As they move toward adolescence, these functions support independence and autonomy.

Sponsored by the Churchville Middle School Positive Family Support Program, this series of workshops are designed to help parents understand these normal developmental cycles and respond effectively to their children’s struggles. The first workshop was held January 10 on the topic of coping skills. Two more remain:

  • Tuesday, February 7; 9-10am – “Problem Solving” – Parents will identify targeted problem-solving approaches based on their child’s developmental circumstances.
  • Tuesday, March 14; 6-7pm – “Parenting Strategies” – Based on feedback from the first two sessions, the presenters will facilitate role-play education to teach and model parenting strategies to situation-based challenges.

The presentations will take place at Churchville Middle School in the MediaScape Lab, 155 Victory Parkway, Elmhurst and all are welcome. They are led by Katie McDougall and Steve Ritter, both Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Ms. McDougall is a former school social worker and Mr. Ritter is the Managing Director of the Midwest Institute & Center for Workplace Innovation. For further details, please click on the flyer below or contact Churchville Social Worker Megan McCarthy at 630-617-2244 or mmccarthy@elmhurst205.org.
