The following programs are presented by The Resource Place at the JCC.
Do you have trouble finding foods that will both nourish and satisfy your child? Tired of serving single-color foods? Learn why some children are more particular about foods than others and take home some new strategies to try that might open up a whole new world of food choices at your dinner table.
How worried should parents be about the amount of time their children spend looking at screens? How much should parents police that screen time? That's what filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston set out to learn in her documentary "Screenagers: Growing Up In the Digital Age". "This is the parenting issue of our time", said Berkeley native Delaney Ruston. "Tech on its own isn't bad, but it's bad when it's out of balance." Join the community showing of the movie and discussion geared for parents, teachers, tweens and teens in the Hart Theater. Presented by Brighton Central Schools, the JCC's Resource Place and the JCC Ames Amzalak Rochester International Jewish Film Festival.
Come explore Mindful Eating and its concepts. Learn how to eat more mindfully and help your children develop a healthy relationship with food and their bodies through knowledge and specific methods of practice. Eating can be a natural and pleasurable activity. This workshop will help you become more aware of your relationship with food and help you teach the same to your children. A mindful meal will be part of this exciting workshop so that we can put the principals into practice. Learn about satiety levels, emotional eating and much more.
