Lee's Summit R7 Parents as Teachers

October 2021

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The coronavirus pandemic has changed daily life in many ways, but the importance of providing support to children and families has remained constant. Thank you for your continued support of our program and allowing us to partner with you on this parenting journey!

Welcome Fall!

The leaves are falling, the air is getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. There are so many great things to do to celebrate this season! Check out some of the books we love and activities!

Fantastic Fall Reads

Conscious Discipline Corner

Last month we shared the Brain State Model and this month's October tip is one of the Seven Powers of Conscious Adults: The Power of Perception. The most important piece of this power is keeping your composure. When we lose self-control, we lose our ability to discipline ourselves and our children.

Want to learn more about Conscious Discipline? Be sure to check out our upcoming group connection (details below)!
