How to talk to your child about tough topics
Every parent (and grandparent) is faced at one time or another with a situation where a child asks a difficult question about a tough topic. Current events can blur the line between fantasy and reality, and that is confusing for kids. Children are naturally curious. Their questions about sexuality or divorce are often challenging to address. Kate Rickord, licensed psychologist and Senior Director of Foster Care and Adoption at St. David’s Center, gives good advice and some straight talk about how to respond on a recent MomEnough podcast with Marti Erickson. Listen online and check out our tip sheet on our parenting section of the website.
New therapy treatment gyms open
St. David’s Center opened new, state-of-the-art Occupational Therapy gyms this spring, including our Super Gym, which enables us to serve children up to age 13. The addition increases our total number of treatment spaces to 11, and allows us to serve even more children and keep wait lists shorter.
Now is a good time to get a jump on the school year and enroll your child in Occupational and/or Speech Therapy. Contact our CORE navigators at 952.548.8700 to begin the process. They are ready to guide you through a process that ensures comprehensive care.
