Parent Night: Shared Learning Conference

Social-Emotional Health: Perspectives for Parents as We Support our Children’s Development

Join us for a Parent Night as part of the Abbotsford School District's Shared Learning Conference!

  • Date: February 22, 2018
  • Time: 6:00pm – 7:00pm
  • Location: Abbotsford Arts Centre
  • Presenter: Mike McKay / Director, Canadian Self-Regulation Initiative

Over the past decade, advances in neuroscience have increased our ability to understand the foundations of children’s growth and development from infancy to adolescence. As parents, teachers, coaches and community members, it is time to take a new look at many of the routines that have long-defined the adult-child relationship and the child’s place in the world.

In asking “When Will What We Know Change What We Do?” Mike McKay will present this parent session to provide an opportunity for participants to confirm, or to rethink and reshape, routines and expectations as we strive to support our children during the most complex time of their lives.
