Speaking of Kids Seminars


Speaking of Kids is a popular series of seminars being offered by the Farmington and Lakeville School Districts. The seminars will empower parents, educators, and caregivers by providing information and ideas to enhance their relationships with children and to help them succeed.

Farmington School District #192 and Lakeville School District #194 Community Education and Early Childhood Family Education programs have partnered together to provide these important and beneficial seminars to area residents.

The third seminar, “Using a Nurtured Heart Lens to Help Children Be at Their Best”, led by Amy Sward and Alisa Anderson will help parents develop and shift their responses to children’s behavior. These responses can help children flourish and build inner confidence to make better decisions in a variety of settings.

Alisa Anderson is a Certified Nurtured Heart Approach Trainer and Least Restrictive Environment Specialist for Lakeville Area Public Schools.
