Playing with Their World: Play in Early Childhood Registration required Tuesday, May 14 7:00 – 9:00 PM Location: Perkins Hall, Melrose Wakefield Hospital
A parent has an important role in their child’s world of play. From setting up a variety of play experiences and clarifying their personal values about play, parents help provide enrichment and opportunities that have a lasting effect on their child’s physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development. This session will allow parents to increase their knowledge about the benefits of play and how they can create a learning space and influence their child’s world of play.
Through the Eyes of a Child: Media Violence in Early Childhood Registration required
Monday, June 3 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Location: School of Nursing, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, 170 Medford Ave., Medford
Exposure to media violence can negatively impact brain development in young children and affect behavior in the short and long term. Parents play a crucial role in protecting children from and helping them understand the media they consume. In this session, parents will learn to assess and understand their children’s exposure to violence in the media, effects of that exposure, and how they can use their influence to minimize both exposure and impact.
