Wayne Presbyterian Church is hosting Brad Reedy, PhD for a discussion on Raising Resilient Children Amidst Today's Societal Challenges on Thurs., Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.
Parents and those working with children are challenged by technology, high expectations and cultural definitions of success. Dr. Reedy will help parents learn how to shift from striving to comply with society's high expectations and obsession with over-performance to promoting the development of a healthy sense of self in our children.
His message will resonate with parents of children and teens (10+ years) as well as young adults. The event is free and open to the public.

Registration for the Spring Flag Football season is happening now. And spots will fill up quickly.
The season is run by Flag Star Football, a Sunday-only, K-7th grade (Boys and Girls) league with two goals: Get Better and Have Fun. No screaming coaches, no midweek practices -- just fun, teamwork and some fresh air on a Sunday afternoon. It’s organized, it’s active and it’s run by a super positive set of coaches and referees.
This is a league for everyone – boys and girls, athletes and bookworms – and is committed to full inclusion (financial aid available). You can register for the league here, find out more about times/locations here, or e-mail league founder David Osei with questions.
Registration closes in April or as teams fill up -- and the league really is something cool -- so act now or forever hold your cleats!
