Parent Workshop

As the school year heads towards it's ending I can't help but look back at the participants in the S.P.A.C.E. workshops. I am so proud of the parents who have come monthly to learn about new ways to care for their children and to support each other as well as the school. The testimonies of the parents who have made changes at home and seen positive results in their children's behaviors has been worth it. I hope to be allowed to provide this workshop again for the next school year. Leave me a comment and let me know if you think this kind of workshop would be beneficial for parents at your child's school.

Too School For Cool

I was listening to one of my  favorite pop artists Pink and a line from the song stood out to me. The line was "If you're too school for cool and you're treated like a fool, raise your glass." This sang to me celebrate that you are different. Celebrate that fact that you like to study and enjoy school. This song also inspired me to create a support group for kids who have experienced bullying this fall. The group of course has been titled Too School For Cool. Feel free to let me know what the lyrics mean to you.

S.P.A.C.E.

S.P.A.C.E. Spectrum Program, Advocacy, Consultation and Education services came to be as a result of my collaboration with a friend and co-worker Monica Lopez. Monica is a mental health specialist who possesses and passion for working with children on the autsim spectrum. Monica has spent years fine tuning her skills to better assist children and families living with autismm spectrum disorders. Monica's own life has been personally effected by Autism. Monica and I cam together to create S.P.A.

Positive Self Image Groups for Girls

Positive Self Image Groups for Girls recently began in Lakewood, Ca. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to effect the lives of young girls in a positive manner. The groups assist girls with defining beauty for themselves, setting personal goals and improving self esteem. There are two groups; one for girls ages 10-13 and one for girls ages 14-18. I have recently reduced the price of group participation by 50% in order to allow more girls the ability to participate. The groups are on going on Friday afternoons and now just $15 a week.

May a Busy Awareness Month

I have realized that May is a busy month
 
for awareness. Nurses and Educators  Appreciation week was this month. I took the time to let the nurses and educators I know, how greatful I am for their service. In  the upcoming week we have millitary and police officer appreciation. I have many friends and family both in the armed forces and on the police force. I am thankful for those who have chosen to take on the difficult job of protecting the rest of  us. Also May is Mental Health and Lupus Awareness Month.

Mental Health Awarness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness month. I'm excited to be a part of those assisting others with improving their knowledge about ways to improve mental health. My Positive Self Image Group for girls that will begin this June is just one way to help improve the mental health of youth in the community. I recommend taking a look at the NAMI  (National Alliance on Mental Illness) websitewww.nami.orgfor information on family support groups. I will also be posting information on my facebook page
