READY! SET! ROUTINE!

Jennifer Mahon is a former public school educator with over 20 years of experience and a mother of four school aged children.

During this workshop, Jennifer will connect with parents to help them establish simple daily/weekly routines to assist parents and kids achieve more structure and comfort during this difficult time. Jennifer's topics will focus on developing simple family expectations that will allow parents and children to understand how to adjust to the new "normal" of social distancing.

This workshop is designed to help families create a more comfortable flow to their daily life and these "tips" can continue to provide structure to family life when "things get back to normal". There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion after Jennifer presents her tips. Please join Jen via Zoom on Wednesday April 15th at 10:30 am and/or 6:00pm.
