Parent Support and Resource Centre to host family game night

The Sylvan Lake Parent Support and Resource Centre is hosting its first open house and free family game night Feb. 18

The Sylvan Lake Parent Support and Resource Centre is hosting its first open house and free family game night Feb. 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Community Centre.

Community members are being invited to the event, and must register for a chance to win a family gift pack. Hot dogs, fruit trays, coffee and juice will be available.

Parents will have the chance to find out what new resources are available, as the centre has recently undergone a number of changes, said program co-ordinator Kim Olsen.

Information on resources will be offered to parents with children up to the age of 17. Such resources include individual or group training sessions, bully prevention initiatives, parent and caregiver education sessions, parenting support, a parent resource library and a toy lending program.

Through these programs, parents can learn different strategies and techniques on how to actively parent, positively discipline and self-empower, and learn that kids have stress too.

“Were hoping that parents come through and see what we have to offer and do some of our workshops and build on their parenting skills,” Olsen said. “We provide parents with information and we also connect them to resources in the community, which helps build their support.”

During the open house and game night, the Flipside Youth Centre will be open for parents and children to partake in activities such as Wii, pool and board games.

“It’s to bring families together, because it’s Family Week,” Olsen said. “We want the families to come in and know what we have to offer.”
