Parents, educators, teachers, administrators and childcare workers are invited to the Western Oakland County Parenting Education Fair, 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Nov. 21 at Oakland Community Collegeâs Orchard Ridge Campus in Farmington Hills.
This event marks the second year of partnership with the PTAs and staff from Farmington, Huron Valley, Walled Lake and West Bloomfield school districts as well as Oakland Schools and Oakland County Youth Assistance. An expanded parenting education experience is planned.
The event will feature keynote speaker, Kirk Martin. Martin, and his son, Casey, will provide parents and teachers with a dozen strategies that will eliminate defiance, disrespect, yelling, bullying, sibling fights and more that characterize our homes and classrooms. Martin will give concrete, practical strategies that work with kids ages 2-22 in everyday situations to:
– Get your kids to listen the first time.
– Stop defiance, disrespect and yelling.
– Stop whining, tantrums and sibling fights.
– Get kids off video games/screens without a fight.
– Create stress-free mornings, homework time and bedtime.
