The York Catholic District School Board and the York Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (YCPIC) thank all parents who attended the Connected Parenting conference at Jean Vanier Catholic High School in Richmond Hill on April 16, 2016.
The conference featured Author, and Child and Family Therapist, Jennifer Kolari, who shared insightful strategies and offered expert advice and solutions for issues that families deal with every day. She discussed ways to strengthen the parent-child bond, stop power struggles, and lower anxiety by creating positive change. Parents who attended the conference also received a complimentary book from the author.
YCPIC is an advisory body whose primary purpose is to promote effective parent involvement, enabling parents to play a stronger role in supporting student achievement.
The conference was made possible through the Ministry of Education's Regional Pro Grant.
