• There is a great Parenting class being offered by the Child & Family Support Center that starts in November. It is every Tuesday evening from 6:30-8:00. The class will address Healthy Families, Self-Esteem, Communication, and Discipline. I would highly recommend this class. It is only $15 a couple or $10 a participant and they offer a nursery for children 0-11. To Register Call Karen at 435-752-8880. To see a list of the classes offered for children and teens go to childandfamilysupportcenter.org. This organization is there to help and support your family.

• A mom told me about a Preschool Home program that she and her kids love. It’s called Preschool Prep. Here is their webpage so you can check it out. It’s a DVD program and books that match up with it. http://www.preschoolprepco.com/

Home Challenge: Now that it’s getting darker earlier it’s a great time to take the kids outside before bed and do some star gazing. Teach them how to find the big dipper and the north star. You can do some star counting as well. See how high they can count. I finished assessments this week and will start e-mailing you individually about what I think would be a good academic goal to set.
