Parents of preschool and elementary age children are invited to participate in a lively discussion focused on raising well-adjusted children, led by educational consultant Brenda Fitzgerald. She will speak at First Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, March 13 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the church sanctuary. There is no charge for this event.

“The most powerful force in your child being well-adjusted depends on his or her personal choices,” said Ms. Fitzgerald. “Guiding children to make the right choices in life evolves over time with love, patience, discipline and saying ‘no.’ They are human and will not always make the right choices.”

The discussion will include aspects of child development that challenge parents of young children. Ms. Fitzgerald will address those goals parents seek for their children including: taking responsibility for their choices; respecting themselves and others; developing into the women and men they are called to be; and growing into well-adjusted adults.

“This program will reach out to young families, addressing the challenges they are facing,” said Anna Gray Hart, FPC Weekday Preschool Director.

The speaker, Brenda Fitzgerald, serves as the Executive Director of the Georgia Educational Training Agency. She is a well-respected educational consultant and a dedicated teacher and speaker, bringing humor into her workshops with parents and educators.

The event is sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church Weekly Pre-School and the church’s Family Council. This is a free event. Childcare will be provided through the Church Nursery and reservations should be made by end of day today by emailing
