During six group sessions, participants learn how to engage their child’s willing cooperation; avoid unwinnable power struggles and arguments; stay calm and empathetic in upsetting situations; set enforceable limits; deal with their child’s negative feelings (frustration, disappointment, anger); avoid enabling and start empowering their kids; and raise children who are family team members.
FREE to residents of St. Louis County, with the support of the Children’s Service Fund. Scholarships available for other participants. For more information or to register, call 314-525-7296.
Many things can cause back pain, such as poor postural habits and improper mechanics when lifting, exercising or performing everyday activities. Join Maureen Blackburn, Outpatient Physical Therapist and Spine Specialist with St. Anthony's Sports and Physical Therapy, to ask questions and learn about causes, prevention and treatment of back issues. Maureen will have information about proper lifting and body mechanics to prevent and manage your back pain. All attendees will be entered to win a "Get Fit" gift basket.
"Big" brothers and sisters have a special class, too. In small groups, children practice the correct way to hold, feed and diaper a baby. They also visit the nursery. Participants should bring a doll or teddy bear (for diapering practice) and a picture of themselves. This class is recommended for children ages 3 and older. Parents are required to stay with their children.
Parking Instructions: This class will be held in the 4th Floor Heart & Vascular Conference Room. If possible, please park behind the hospital, near the Heart & Vascular Center entrance. Take the elevator to the 4th floor, turn left off the elevator and proceed to the conference room, located down the hall to the right.
