Connecting with Parents
CHEO, in collaboration with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, reached out to parents and future parents by launching a series of parenting seminars. The goal of the parenting seminars is to demystify common childhood issues and provide parents and caregivers with information and strategies on how to deal with the numerous milestones and stages in their child’s life. Each free session focuses on a different age group and deals with physical and mental health topics relating to that demographic such as nutrition, sexuality, mental health, discipline, healthy active living and much more. The events were very well attended, with between 100 and 550 parents attending each. Visit www.cheo.on.ca/cheoconnects for more details.
