At Home Alone Workshop

August 15, 2013 | Yvonne | Comments (2)

The first time I stayed home alone as a child was a rewarding as well as scary experience. I remember feeling like I was real big girl because my parents were trusting me to be home alone. Even so, I was nervous and a wee bit scared. In retrospect, I'm sure my parents felt the same way leaving me alone at home.

Staying home alone for the firHouse-clipart-3st time is a significant milestone for kids - as well as parents. The At Home Alone workshop at Cedarbrae library will help you prepare for this.

At Home Alone - 5 steps to Independence is a fun family workshop to help families prepare their child(ren) (ages 10-14 years old) to be home alone safely.





Parents accompanied with their child(ren) will learn 

  • How to communicate together.
  • Find out if your 10 – 14 year old is ready to be home alone.
  • Increase your safety knowledge.
  • Develop an At Home Alone plan together.                              

Date: Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Time: 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
