Bernie Pavao from the University of Hawaii – Hawaii Community College – Children’s Center will be sharing with parents how to read to young children.  She will demonstrate how to make reading exciting allowing  books to come alive and be interesting to children.  Bernie will be reading a story to children who attend.  Parents with children under five (5) years of age can greatly benefit by this class and are encouraged to attend.

You’re invited to a monthly pot luck dinner.  The purpose of these dinners are to encourage parents to interact and pick up positive parenting ideas to help love and nurture children.  The group has moderators to take questions and get practical answers.  Children are not born with instruction so the group provides the support and place to ask questions. Pot luck dinners are held every second Tuesday of the month, same place, same time. 

By making time to attend this worthwhile event, you’ll save time avoiding and overcoming future problems.  Highly recommended for parents with children under seven years of age, children and anyone interested in parenting are welcomed to attend.
