Wednesday, February 9 Fostering Responsibility and Independence: The Importance of Positive Communication at Home, School and Community (Personal), 10am-12pm. Join us at the Brubeck Room for an in-person session with school psychologist David P. Sylvestro. Though Detroit automakers have made “planned obsolescence” a dirty word, it’s okay to think of obsolescence as an important part of parenting. After all, as parents, we want to guide, shape and prepare our children so well that they actually don’t NEED us anymore! By keeping our children’s eventual independence in mind, we can provide them with reasonable parameters, help them set goals, and determine the responsibilities they can take on. An important part of this process is strengthening our own positive communication skills – how we encourage and strengthen our children’s development in these essential areas.
Monday, February 14 Valentine’s Day Crafts (In-Person), 4:15-5:00 pm On Valentine’s Day, kids in grades K through 2 can make Valentine’s Day Crafts with us. Pop-up Valentines, classic hearts with doilies, and more! Masks MUST be worn at all times. Registration required. While we hope to offer this program in person, if circumstances warrant it, we will switch to Zoom, prepare craft kits, and email all registrants with the link the day before the program. A separate email will be sent to let attendees know when to pick up craft kits in case we need to move the program to Zoom. To sign up, visit www.wiltonlibrary.org.
