City's Parent Education series starts Feb. 26

'Raising Resilient Children' topic of 1st session

"Raising Resilient Children" will be the topic of the first of the 2014 series of a Parent Education series of seminars for parents on Wednesday, Feb. 26.

Presented by Rachel Sklar, a Certified Parent coach from Parents Place on the Peninsula, this free seminar will focus on the challenges of raising children in today's "hurry up" world. Participants will learn strategies for raising resilient and healthy children, and how parents can establish healthy family schedules and find the right balance for their families.

According to Sklar, many parenting experts feel that parents are under continuous pressure to plan, enrich, and do this important job of parenting the right way. The pressure and stress on today's families can be overwhelming!

The parent education series was developed by the Pleasanton Community Services staff in conjunction with the Pleasanton Youth Commission. All programs will be held from 7-9 p.m. in the large meeting room of the Pleasanton Public Library, 400 Old Bernal Ave.

Subsequent monthly presentations with different topics will be held in the same place, at the same time on Wednesday, March 26: "A Balanced Approach to Navigating Youth Sports;" Wednesday, April 23: "The Wonder Years: Transition to Middle School," and on Wednesday, May 28: "I'm Talking But They're Not Listening: Communicating with Children."
