Meeting at Bothell this Saturday, December 20, 10:00AM to Noon

Hello,

The holidays are a wonderful time for children particularly.  Remember those days?  Let’s spend some time thinking back to what made those days fun for us or what made them not so fun. Is it possible to apply some of that knowledge to our holiday times with our children right now?  Also bring any other issues important to you, and some holiday humor!  Coffee will be hot and donuts low cal!

 

This is a Kindering Bothell meeting so make sure you know the address:  19801 N. Creek Parkway, Suite 200, Bothell, WA 98011.

Entry to the building is on the North Side.  WSFN signs will be up to point the way.  Oh, if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions please email me before 7:00AM on Saturday.

See you there!

Wrap Up: GUY TALK with Dr. Robert Naseef, December 2014

This past Sunday was the December installment of Guy Talk with Dr. Robert Naseef. Kathleen Tehrani of AutismBrainstorm was a wonderful host, yet again, as Dr.Naseef facilitated a conversation among the panelists answering the question:  What can fathers give their families for the holidays? Dr. Stephen Shore was the featured contributor and shared his experiences growing up with autism and his observations and suggestions for how fathers can make a difference around holidays, celebrations, and every day. Then the rest of the panelists took turns sharing their families’ experiences and traditions around the holiday seasons. It was another amazing installment in this series and probably one of the can’t miss episodes.

GUY TALK with Dr Robert Naseef: What can fathers give their families for the holidays?

When: Sunday, December 14, 2014 @ 6:00PM Pacific

Where: Google+ Hangout (Edit: link added 12/11)

This Sunday’s Guy Talk hangout with Dr. Robert Naseef will focus on answering the question:  What can fathers give their families for the holidays?

With the holiday shopping frenzy upon us, mothers are busier than ever and stressed.  The joy and excitement of this season is in even shorter supply for parents of children with autism and other special needs.  Most parents envision their excited child having fun with new toys, yet many parents of children with special needs are confronted with celebrations marred by meltdowns and disappointment.What can fathers give their families?  How can men show up and make a difference?

Join us Sunday December 14 at 6:00 PM Pacific Time for Guy Talk moderated by Dr. Robert Naseef. Dr. Stephen Shore will be our featured contributor and will share his experiences growing up with autism and his observations and suggestions for how fathers can make a difference around holidays, celebrations, and every day.

Saturday, December 6th, 9:30-noon, Dads meet in Bellevue at Kindering

Our last meeting was an informative discussion on what being thankful meant for each of us.  Our children were one of the things a lot of us discussed.  Our children are very powerful people in our lives and often times beyond.  One of the topics we’ll cover will be identifying how our children influence us in positive ways.  Depending on what is happening with your child currently it may be easy or difficult.  Regardless, it is a very interesting and informative topic considering we live with these perceptions and they definitely help form our lives.  Looking to your insights!

 

We meet at Kindering, 16120 NE 8th Street, Bellevue, WA 98008 from 9:30-noon.  Come for all or part of the meeting.  It will be good to see you.
