Sleep Help from Practical Parenting

Our next Practical Parenting session will be this Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 3 p.m.  The theme will be Sleep Help.  Children commonly have trouble sleeping—-whether falling asleep or sleeping in their own beds. We’ll talk about ways parents can improve their children’s sleep.  The speakers, Haley Bednarz and Helen Root, are graduate students in UAB's Medical Clinical Psychology Program.  We'll also have parenting books that address sleep problems as well as picture books about bedtime to check out and share with your children.  There is no need to register to be part of this session.  Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone to the Youth Program Room.

KJ's Reader Getaways

So I think most of you know that my name is Katie Jane.  And that I like books.  I also like to talk about books.  And, when I go into the schools, I'm always having teachers and parents say they'd love to sit down and talk books with me somewhere that isn't school.  I have good news!  I'm taking my show on the road!

I'm launching a new outreach initiative for adults who want to talk about kid lit.  KJ's Reader Getaways will take place once a month.  The day of the week and the time of day will change, in order to fit into a variety of people's schedules.  The location will also change.  I'll be stopping by a variety of local eateries all over our great city.  I'll buy a tasty treat, sit down, and talk about books.  Which ones will I talk about?  Whatever everyone else is interested in discussing!  The first one is fast approaching, so mark your calendar!  I'll go ahead and give you a sneak peek for the other fall Getaway, too.  Click on this link to access a printable flyer complete with addresses.
