CHOICES Quarterly Meeting

Join MCGT’s CHOICES Chapter at 7:00PM on Monday November 21 at the Edina Community Center for our Quarterly CHOICES Chapter meeting!  Connect with the CHOICES board and other CHOICES parents, learn about the exciting activities being planned, and join us in the discussion led by Merri.

Peeling Back for Parents: Engaging Your Kids to Talk About What’s Really on Their Minds

Conversations are the glue between people, the essential element in a strong relationship. Many parents fall into the trap of thinking that it is their job to talk and their child’s to listen. That is only half-right, a parent’s role is to use active – reflective listening too. Join us for an evening with Merri Guggisberg, MKG Parent Coach to gain tools and strategies to have empowered family conversations.

Edina Community Center – First floor, 5701 Normandale Rd, Edina, MN 55424, North door, Room 166
