The ReGroup for Hendersonville Parents


Children & Family Resource Center will begin its “ReGroup” for local parents on Tuesdays beginning June 17th.  This group will meet weekly at the Children and Family Resource Center and is intended for parents, grandparents, and foster parents of children of all ages.  Members will share ideas for what works when it comes to dealing with challenging behaviors and provide support for each other to make the right choices as parents.  The Regroup is led by a trained counselor and parent educator who will offer strategies to help parents navigate the ups and downs of parenthood.  Snacks and socializing will begin at 10 am and the group will meet from 10:30-11:30.  Child care will also be provided.  For more questions or to reserve your spot, call Laura Kollman or Becki Woolf at 698-0674.

Reading to Rover begins on June 4th


Children are invited to come out to the Early Learning Center at the Children & Family Resource Center beginning on June 4 th and continuing each Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-3:30 to practice their reading skills while sharing their favorite stories with a loveable therapy dog.

When children read to a therapy dog, their environment is transformed and the dread that is often associated with reading turns into eager anticipation allowing learning to take place.  In many programs over the country, specially trained dogs are helping children become confident readers. Participating kids are making enormous strides in reading and communication skills, while also building self-esteem, confidence, and social skills.

Early readers are encouraged to come to the Early Learning Center to share a book with an adorable reading companion.  Call Noreen at (698)-0674 ext. 110, to make a reservation as space is limited.

Incredible Changes after Incredible Years Program


As a mother of four year old triplets, seemingly simple things like trips to the grocery store were never easy, and power struggles between the kids were a daily occurrence, so when Tiffany Iannucci walked into the Early Learning Center at the Children & Family Resource Center and saw the brochure for the Incredible Years program, she signed up immediately.

Just a few short weeks after attending the first Incredible Years group session, Tiffany noticed a change; not only in the way the kids were behaving, but in the way she was parenting. The Incredible Years program fosters healthy development in young children by strengthening a parent’s parenting skills and helping them develop effective strategies for managing their children’s challenging behaviors. Tiffany found that as life had gotten busier, she had forgotten the importance of play and praising her children for the little triumphs like putting on their shoes. The program reminded her about the benefits of child-directed play and taking time to interact with her children in meaningful ways.

Today, having completed the program, Tiffany feels like the whole family has been refreshed. Sophia, John, and Ava are getting along beautifully and Tiffany and her husband, John, have improved their interactions with their children. “Before the babies arrived, we read everything we could on infancy, but as they got older, we got so busy that we forgot the simple things. Now, trips to the grocery store are no longer painful and a smile comes across my face when I listen to the way the kids talk to each other. The Incredible Years program has reminded me of all the little things I can do to make a HUGE difference in the lives of my children.”
