This Year's Summit for
Parents of Teens and Tweens
October 11, 2014
Summit ran from 9am to Noon at
McAffee Center behind First Presbyterian Church
520 Royal Palm Boulevard, Vero Beach
Amazing speakers addressed topics of interest for parents of children
aged 10 to 18. These kids are faced with intense social and physical issues
every day, and it makes sense that parents know the latest information
and get ideas on how to open the lines of communication to avert
any difficult issues. Our goal is successful family lives because of
ease in communicating and up-to-date ideas from local experts.
PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!
In addition to the wonderful manual that will be given to every parent
in attendance, we raffled off some exceptional prizes.
