Helping kids cope with war


Tristate reacts to war

How are your children coping with a war-saturated society?

Madelyn Swift, a parenting expert, will help answer that question Saturday at the Millennium Hotel, 141 W. Sixth St.

Swift will present a workshop on "Positive Discipline: Providing Your Child With Roots and Wings" 9 a.m.-noon, followed by a presentation on "Coping with War" noon-1 p.m. Among her topics: talking to kids about war, monitoring exposure to media and coping with the losses associated with war.

The workshop is sponsored by Beech Acres, a family service organization in Anderson Township.

The cost is $35 per person, which includes both events. To register, call 231-7205, ext. 284 or visit www.beechacres.org.
