Thanks to the generous support of the St. Thomas Kinsmen, the Agency was able to provide over 40 backpacks and school supplies to children and youth this September.
The Kinsmen is committed to helping children get off to a good start at school and for that we can’t thank them enough!
Positive parenting booklet and Literature Review
Parents are sometimes faced with the dilemma of: Should I spank my kids and if I do what are the implications for my child? Recent research has highlighted the negative effects on children when their parents use corporal punishment on them.
The Centre for Research and Education on Violence against Women and Children conducted a literature review on the latest research regarding the impact of using corporal punishment on children. Using this information, the Centre has worked collaboratively with Thames Valley District School Board, London District Catholic School Board and FACS to create this new resource for parents, educators and service providers in Elgin County.
