Upcoming Family Connections Conference: Linking Together to Build Strong Families

Parents, grandparents, foster parents, child care providers, aunts, uncles, babysitters and anyone who plays a caregiving role in the life of a child of any age are all invited to participate in a free conference being offered April 21st, at the Veteran’s Memorial Hall in Susanville.

The Family Connections Conference, a community event spearheaded by Sierra Cascade Family Opportunities, is designed for participants to walk away feeling refreshed, inspired and equipped with some new tools to add to their parenting toolbox. Raising children, after all, is the hardest and most important job there is. Organizations including Lassen County Public Health, Lassen Child and Family Services, Lassen Resource and Referral, Lassen County Behavioral Health, Lassen County Office of Ed and others are helping to fund and plan the event.

Headlining the event will be guest speaker Scott Peebles, M.A., MFCC, H.B., a leading child behavioral expert, whose presentation ‘How to Parent your Kids Without Losing Your Mind’ will offer easy, practical, fun and powerful parenting tools.

The workshop will also feature the Parent Café, an opportunity to connect, share and learn with other parents, and the Brain Architecture Game, an interactive opportunity for parents and caregivers to gain an understanding of the powerful role of relationships on early brain development.

According to organizers, parents can expect food, conversation and great information.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Breakfast will be available starting at 8:30a.m., when doors open. The workshop begins at 9:00 and ends at 3:30p.m.

Advance registration is appreciated so that accurate seating, food and materials can be prepared. However, walk-ins will not be turned away.

For more information and to register for free visit: or call Sierra Cascade Family Opportunities at 530-283-1242.
