Promoting Social-Emotional Competence in Children

With increased demands on families and the focus on academic skills in schools, few children are taught the skills that foster social-emotional competence—skills that lead to positive academic outcomes and overall life success. In this introductory talk, parents will learn about the importance of social-emotional competence (or SEC) in children's behavior and success in school, at home, and in the communities where they grow and learn. In addition, parents will learn how SEC helps protect children from bullying.

Summer Fire Safety

Summer is just around the corner and many families are looking forward to camping trips, family reunions and cookouts, picnics at the beach, and the Fourth of July. But summer also brings fires and injuries due to fireworks and outdoor grills. Join Ben Selassie, MSW, MPH with the Injury Free Coalition for Kids Baltimore, and learn how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from fire related injury and death. You will receive a free smoke detector and other safety items.
