The 9 year Change - May 16th 8:15am - 9:30am

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Deborah Rubin, will be on campus on Wednesday, May 16th.

Ms. Rubin will present the ‘9 Year Change.’ This parenting session will cover the developmental and psychological changes specific to the 9 year change. One of the biggest themes is that children revisit the push pull dynamic (similar to the 2 year change), but at 9 it is a lot more complicated. A lot is happening in their little brains. Some of the changes are very subtle and when parents can be prepared and knowledgeable about what is happening, it can help parents not take things so personally; it can be very comforting for parents to know they are not alone. Ms. Rubin will seek to clarify the normalcy of some of the behaviors children display and give some tips on how to make this phase more compassionate for all involved.

This event is for BCD parents only. The presentation is geared towards parent of 2nd - 4th graders, but all are welcome.
