Diffusing the often-resulting power struggle is the focus of a parenting workshop at Stedman Elementary School in Petersburg Thursday (9/27). It’s called “1, 2, 3 Magic”. To find out more, Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Stedman special education teacher Barb Marifern.
The “1,2,3 Magic” workshop is tonight (Thu, sept 27th) at six in the Stedman Elementary School library. Free childcare will be available across the street at the Petersburg Children’s Center and there will be Pizza for parents and their kids.
