Young Mother Support Group February 2014 Meeting

YMSG6The Young Mother's Support Group meeting was held on February 19, 2014 at the Ste Genevieve County Health Department. Donna Cummings, Health Educator from Jefferson County Health Department gave a presentation on "Positive Childhood Discipline." A PowerPoint presentation covered aspects of ways to discipline children at different ages. Donna shared real life stories that she experienced with her family, which the group found very interesting. "She hoped that if they didn't absorb a lot of the information, she hoped they would walk away knowing they are to be the parent not their child's best friend. When the child is grown, they can be best friends, right now they need to build a good foundation."

Next meeting will be held on March 19, 2014 at 5pm in the lower level of the Health Department. Headstart and Parents as teachers will both share information about their programs. This Group is sponsored by the Community Service Forum and Ste. Genevieve Community Development. Private donations are always appreciated.
