Family Cafes Program To Help Families Navigate Challenges Coming To Davenport
The Davenport Community School District and the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach are sponsoring Family Cafes to help families navigate the challenges of raising kids. This is part of a series of conversations about mental health, along with other topics, with families who have similar experiences and a trained professional to facilitate these important conversations.
The next family cafe is happening Wednesday, March 9, 2022, from 4:30-5:30 pm at the Davenport Schools Achievement Service at 1702 North Main Street in Davenport in the 2nd Floor Board Room. The session is titled “Improving Family Life with LPOV (Listening and Point of View).” This fun and interactive workshop is for 5th-8th grade students and their adult family member(s) and is intended to teach and practice active listening skills among family members, as well as assist adult family members and their “tween” children in understanding each other’s point of view.
The registration deadline is Wednesday, March 2 at 5:00 pm. Families can register online. They can email Sarah Brennan at email@example.com to sign-up for childcare or if they need assistance.
