Youth Services will have a special parenting presentation on Monday, May 4th, at 7:30 pm in the High Plains Community Center cafeteria on Your Child’s Developmental Changes by Dr Pei Juan Lei of Orange Pediatrics as the guest speaker. Dr Lei will lead a discussion regarding the social, emotional, and cognitive changes that face school-age or “middle years” children (ages 6-12) and will focus on how this group of individuals is molded by today’s society, how it impacts their growth in the previously mentioned three areas, and how parents can play a vital role in their development. Dr Lei will also have a question and answer period (cards provided for personal parent questions.) There is no charge. All parents welcomed. Snacks/refreshments served.
