Refuel, re-energize and reconnect
The purpose of the BFL Parenting Learning Event 2020 is to help Burnaby parents access new evidence-based knowledge about child development and promote connections to community resources available to families in our city. Topics that will be explored during the event include:
What are the best nutrients for a developing mind and growing body?
How best to balance school life and home life?
When asked by experts, what do kids in Burnaby say is important to their well-being?
Programming will appeal to parents of both young children and teenagers. The sessions will provide information to help parents feel knowledgeable and confident about their family decisions.
