Supporting Your Child’s College
Admissions Process – Whitney Bruce

Thursday, May 4, 2017
6:00pm – 8:00pm

When the media trumpets rising college costs and 5% admission rates to selective colleges, how do you consider both your child’s best interests and the uncertain transition to higher education?

We will discuss tips for approaching the middle and high school years with emphasis on empowering our children. These developed skills will naturally lead to independent students who think carefully about their postsecondary options and present themselves authentically in the college application process.

MPOWER LECTURE SERIES

Mindfulness: Strategies for Parents and Children

Thursday, March 12, 2017
5:30pm – 8:00pm

Our second mPower Speaker Series will be delivered by Bethany Cunningham, Mindfulness Educator.

In an effort to empower our youth, Bethany Cunningham has developed a “Mindfulness” curriculum in a local school. She also teaches mindful practice to adults.

In this months speaker series, Bethany will lead us in a discussion to give parents and care providers real tools to empower our children. Mindfulness is a skill that requires practice but can help our children (and ourselves!) to improve self-regulation, communication techniques and to identify their emotions, create solutions and resolve anxiety and conflict.

As part of our mission at mBrace Orthodontics it is our goal to offer the tools the community needs to support and empower our youth. During this speaker series we will invite a variety of experts to share their knowledge to empower the parents and leaders of our community. Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to a scholarship fund aimed at supporting a local High School Student’s future goals.
We welcome the community to our inaugural lecture!

Kindly,
Tarryn Mac Carthy and Meg Dombroski
