ParentTalk

  1. ParentTalk: Growing our Kids Up

    February 23, 2017, 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM @ Ecole Mountain View School

    Much has been written about the impact of early attachments on the developing brain. Daily we hear about the importance of the first five years in promoting “early brain development” from health and child development professionals. What does this research mean? What about kids who are past the “early years”? What can parents and other adults in our kids’ lives do to help our kids grow? Resources abound providing parenting skills and techniques to help us deal with our children’s behaviours. This session looks what lies beyond behaviour, exploring Gordon’ Neufeld’s relational developmental approach to understanding who parents & adults need to be to grow their kids up. Presented by: Karen Exchange, MEd. RSW Program Specialist, Prevention & Early Intervention North Central Alberta Child & Family Services

    February 22, 2017, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Zamas Health Food Store

If you are feeling flat, fat, tired, or are experiencing chronic illness, you are not eating real food. If you’d love to bounce out of bed feeling fit and fabulous, you must first discover what IS and what ISN'T real food. Imagine never weighing, measuring and counting calories, and losing weight, keeping it off, and eliminate guilt. Return To Food challenges prescriptive approaches to the diet mentality, with a revolutionary and philosophical approach based on nature and reflecting the habits of the healthiest people on the planet. This workshop, will: • demo preparation of ‘real food’ made simple • allow everyone samples and taste tests of delicious whole plant based foods (including dessert!!) • share philosophies and strategies • show you how easy it is to begin eating real whole plant foods right now! • give out recipes to get you started
