Bristol Township School District is starting Family Nights again on Nov. 3. Held on the first Wednesday of each month, Family Nights revolve around family wellbeing and are hosted by the Family to Family Initiative – a cooperative program of the Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services and Family Service Association of Bucks County.
The November Family Night, Praising Children, will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Brookwood Elementary School, and is the first in-person Family Night since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Family Night is a free evening complete with a parent educator-led discussion about using positive praise as a discipline technique, supervised children’s activities and an engaging parent-child craft to make and take home. The November Family Night will also feature a Thanksgiving theme for storytime and crafts.
“Family Nights are designed to promote parent-child interaction, development-centered parenting and family wellbeing. Our parent educators provide families with skills and resources to strengthen families,” said Rachel Minton, M.Ed., Family Strengthening Program coordinator at Family Service. “We are excited to be back in person making connections with families in Bucks County.”
Upcoming Family Nights include:
– Dec. 1: Instilling Morals and Values
– Jan. 5: Teaching Empathy
– Feb. 2: Meeting Our Needs and the Needs of Our Children
– March 2: Keeping Our Kids Safe
– April 6: Giving Children Responsibility
Families should also save the date for Family Fest on May 4. The annual event is a culmination of all Family Nights with 10-50 resources and organizations present throughout the county, as well as books and games.
