In this interactive series, the focus is on understanding the unique challenges parents of children under age 5 encounter as their children move through the toddler and preschool years. Topics include but are not limited to: effective communication, the link between behaviour and temperament, understanding child development, having appropriate behavioral expectations, and responding to children’s misbehaviour in ways that promote growth and self regulation. Responding to temper tantrums, coping with separation anxiety, teaching social skills such as sharing and turn taking are a few examples of topics that can be included. Fun, free, and informative!

Break out of your reading rut and join us for a book discussion circle with a new book each month. We will explore new fiction and non-fiction in a friendly atmosphere led by our McGill librarians.

In April we will explore a non-fiction title,The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells - taken without her knowledge in 1951 - became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance. This is a story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about a mother she never knew. - Publisher

This program is free, but space is limited. Please register in person at McGill Branch or by calling 604-299-8955.

Registration for this month's discussion opens on March 28th.  Once registered, bring your library card on, or after, March 28th, to pick up a copy of the book at McGill Branch. Participants are asked to complete the book in advance of the event.
