May Parent Coffee

“Getting Yourself & Your Camper Ready for Camp!”

Whether you’re a first-year parent or a seasoned GAC family, getting your camper and yourself ready for camp both physically and emotionally can be a daunting task…What’s a foam pad? Will my camper make friends? How do medications at camp work? What if my camper struggles to adjust to camp? Do I really need the Campanion app? What will I do with my free time when my camper is away from home? Bring your coffee or tea, your advice and your questions, and we’ll help each other get prepared for camp this summer!

February Parent Coffee

“Make Friends: Coaching Your Kids to Better Friendships”

Social and emotional skills, just like academic and athletic ones, are not fixed or personality dependent. The skills necessary to make and keep friends need to be discussed, modeled, and practiced.

Making friends, and being a good friend, doesn’t come naturally to all people. And, coupled with the crazy culture we’re in, it’s no surprise that many kids are struggling to form strong friendships.

Come learn from Audrey “Sunshine” Monke how to be your child’s “Friendship Skills Coach” at this month’s Parent Coffee on Wednesday, February 16 at 10am PT. 

Register HERE for the February 16 Parent Coffee. Registrants will be sent a recording after the meeting as well as a PDF with the strategies and links we discuss. We hope to see you there!
