Conference on kids aims to educate for Success

A variety of workshops and speakers will be highlights of the 2014 Success By 6 and Aboriginal Success By 6 conference being held this Saturday in Duncan.

Success By 6 has gathered speakers on "topics virtually all caregivers encounter while raising young children," said a press release.

Sessions will be of interest to parents, but also other relatives and mentors.

Speakers include Bernadine Mawson "back by overwhelming demand", to talk about the effects of residential schools on children; Marc Lalonde on helping parents tune-in; Mary Burgaretta and Pepper Brewster on living in two cultures; and Diana Sharpe to demonstrate how to encourage good sleep hygiene for kids having problems sleeping a full night.
