Looking for a place to go to talk through your frustrations about child rearing? Here it is! Starting this month, January 2020 Family Central will begin a parenting book club/support group that concentrates on mindful parenting and open to anyone (parents, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers). Come out to learn how understanding early brain development can foster a wonderful confidence in knowing you are doing what is best for the full potential of the children in your life. In the process get the "aha" insights that simply make life with children easier.
Our first book is Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline by Dr. Becky Bailey will be available at this meeting. We will discuss the book at our February meeting.Location:AWPL Board RoomAge Group:Adult

Join us for the book launch of local author Elizabeth Knight's new book Repair Revolution: How Fixers Are Transforming Our Throwaway Culture.
Every year, millions of people throw away clothes, furniture, computers, appliances, and countless other items that get broken through natural wear and tear, simply because they lack the know-how to fix them. It’s just more convenient to buy new stuff. This throwaway lifestyle depletes Earth’s resources and adds to overflowing landfills. Although our society accepts frivolous waste as normal, there is a better way. Repair Revolution chronicles the rise of repair cafés: nonprofit, volunteer organizations devoted to repairing electronics and household items for free. Repair Revolution explores the philosophy and wisdom of repairing, as well as the rising "Right to Repair" movement. It finishes with the practical details: online resources, fixes for common product malfunctions, and tips for founding your own repair café. Ultimately, Repair Revolution is about more than fixing material objects: in an age of overconsumption and planned obsolescence, do-it-yourself repair is a way of caring for our lives, our communities, and our planet.
Folowing a discussion of her Book Elizabeth will sign copies of her book.
