Kids and Aggression with Scott Noyes - Helping children resolve conflict and manage anger

Thursday, October 3rd
6:00 – 8:00 PM
Gateway Regional Middle School
12 Littleville Road, Huntington, MA

Food and Free Childcare Provided

Please join us for an evening of learning and discussion with child expert Scott Noyes! This event is FREE and open to the public. We will be exploring how we can help our kids learn to manage anger and increase their coping skills.

Valuable lifelong lessons are learned from childhood disputes. Helping children learn to disagree is a skill many of us have never been exposed to. This presentation stresses resolving conflict through mediation, triads, and supportive intervention. Helping children with emotional development, specifically working with anger, will be addressed.

RSVP to Karen Malinowski including childcare needs at
