RAISING RESILIENT KIDS: A Workshop For Grandparents

  • Sheridan Senior Center 211 Smith Street Sheridan, WY, 82801 United States (map)

As a part of the annual early childhood symposium, Building Communities Where Children & Families Thrive we would like to invite you to a workshop with Dr. Bob Sornson, founder of the Early Learning Foundation in Michigan.   Bob will be talking about how we help children develop self-regulation and empathy. 

Children with self-regulation skills can manage their own emotions, calm themselves, persevere and focus their attention.  Children with empathy have the foundation for social-emotional learning. These skills help children to be successful learners, workers and human beings.   In this workshop—designed especially for grandparents—you will learn specific techniques to help kids regulate themselves and develop social intelligence in school and in life.

Bob Sornson, Ph.D. is the founder of the Early Learning Foundation. He is a best-selling author and international speaker, trainer, and consultant.  As a teacher and school administrator, Bob recognized the importance of early learning success in the development of patterns of learning success which affect students for life.

Many thanks to Whitney Benefits Corporation for making it possible for this event to be free and open to anyone who would like to participate.
