family1A Parenting Workshop by ELC teacher, Mrs. Dawn Lantero, will be held on Friday, April 13 at 9:00 a.m. The topic will be "Parenting Styles and Their Impact on Children." Learn what research has shown about the four parenting styles and their long-term effect on children's emotional well-being. Mrs. Lantero is the author of S.P.L.A.S.H. Parenting Principles. She is also a parenting workshop facilitator, columnist, consultant, and blogger ( She has been sharing new insights for 17 years by combining her experience as a teacher and knowledge as a mother of four to offer real life solutions to both teachers and parents who are looking for inspiration and support. She believes that parents who take the time to learn even just a little about child development and positive discipline can dramatically alter their total family experience. Once put into place, her practices have long-lasting benefits. This workshop is open to all interested church and ELC parents and their friends. Here is a Flyer to share with others. Complimentary child care will be provided. In order to plan for that, all attendees are asked to register by signing up on a sheet available in the ELC or on the ELC table in the Information Café.
