Here we are in our final week of February. Where has the time gone? We have celebrated Valentine's Day and Family Day. And last week FCSS hosted a very informative parent information session about preventing eating disorders and promoting a healthy body image in our children. For more information about this topic check out Me Without Measure an Edmonton agency committed to promoting healthy eating and body image in young people. The guest speaker Michelle had so much valuable information for all of us parents and community members in attendance.
Tonight is the next installment of Parents Empowering Parents. A support group aimed at helping parents of youth and young adults that are struggling with addictions and or drug abuse. Even if you are concerned that your youth might be using alcohol or drugs, please come out for an informative and supportive evening. I have included a poster with some more information and the most current meeting dates for 2010.
Enjoy what's left of February and like always if you would like more information about programming for youth and families within the Town of Beaumont, please drop me a line or give me a call. 780 504-5969. Have a great week!
