June 29, 2012 by cpehrson

In their mission to support children and families, the National Children’s Study-Utah is offering information on family health and safety that will help them to create healthy home environments and strengthen their positive parenting skills.

They are offering four presentations on the following topics:

Healthy Homes: Did you know that most people spend over 90% of their time indoors? It is your children’s primary environment. Come learn the seven principles of a healthy home along with the tools and resources to create and maintain a healthy home.

Parents Empowered: Parents who are actively involved in their kids’ lives and set clear rules and expectations on no alcohol use have a powerful influence on their children’s decision to remain alcohol-free. Kids need help to stay alcohol-free. Learn what you can do to keep your child alcohol- free.

Chemicals in Our Environment: In our environment today, over 80,000 chemicals are found. Come learn what type of chemicals are found in common household products, from food, cosmetics, and cleaning products to gardening and car care products.

Stress Management for Parents: Come learn how to manage your stress and bring out the positive in your parenting

If you are interested in arranging a presentation, please call 435-797-9000 to speak with staff.  You can watch the National Children’s Study-Utah Facebook page to keep up to date on other information and activities for families.
