Still time to register

Parenting ClassesI’ve been working on revamping my hand-outs and adding a Powerpoint (well, Keynote — same diff as we used to say in the 80s!) for the visual learners. I keep getting asked about offering the class online but haven’t really figured out how to do this. I’m asking some of my colleagues who do webinars about the tech part but I’d also need to figure out how to turn a fairly long class (it’s usually 2-hours across 6 weeks but this time I’m trying 4 hours on 2 days) into something palatable online. Maybe stick with the six week format and hope people are willing to come to their computers that many times? Me, I’m not crazy about webinars so it’s hard for me to figure what others might like. If you have some thoughts, let me know.

Meanwhile if you’re in Central Ohio, come on by this Saturday or sign up for the newsletter (there in the sidebar) and get alerted when I teach the class in the fall (probably in October).

Central Ohio Car Seat Check-ups

The Columbus Health Department has released their car seat check-up list. Just drive your car there, let them make sure your car seat is properly installed, the right seat for your child and help you make sure the straps, etc. fit correctly. Peace of mind! Because dang, those car seats are confusing.

Sharing around this week

fallpumpkin-insideHere are some things that caught my eye and that I shared on my Twitter or Google Plus or on my Building Family Counseling Facebook page this week:

  • Catie, my co-facilitator for the All Adoption group has decided to create a casual, peer support Central Ohio Adoptee only group! If you or anyone you know might be interested in meeting up monthly, please join the Facebook page to get more info. This is SO SO NEEDED and I’m really thrilled she’s doing it!
  • I loved these pictures from the Humans of New York book review over at Brain Pickings. I don’t think I’d be happy living someplace so crowded but I sure do like knowing that it’s there to visit.
  • My friend Janine’s father died last week and she shared this post of her memories of being a little girl and spending time with him. Janine is a terrific, terrific writer and ought to be in your feed readers.
  • Spilt Milk wrote about having her children nearly removed from her care when she was struggling with a crisis in her mental health. Mentally ill mothers can be good mothers, too.
