Powerful Moms and Super Dads program fun and informative

The Powerful Moms and Super Dads free program which came to Rimbey last week proved to be interesting, informative and, fun for the whole family.

Leanne Evans, program co-ordinator Rimbey Early Child Development Coalition said comments from the parents and caregivers were positive and many people indicated they would like to see the program return.

“The speakers were wonderful and there was lots of positive feedback,” she said. “And the entertainment was absolutely fantastic.”

For Evans the most rewarding part of the program was to observe the adults who attended the program. She said it was obvious that those in attendance were interested in learning and becoming more educated in ways of providing the best possible care and nurturing experiences for their young families.

“The speakers reinforced the importance of development from zero to five,” she said. “But they also stressed that it’s never too late, you can always make things better.”

Evans said speakers also pointed out that adults need to be aware that attitudes are contagious and children are quick to pick up on communication styles and underlying tensions.

“Interactions that adults have with each other (when the child is young) can affect that child’s choices when he or she is older,” she said.

About 40 adults and several children attended the event held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre last Saturday.
