The Westford Parent Connection is celebrating its fourteenth anniversary during the 2014–2015 school year. The WPC was formed in 2001 to provide Westford parents and guardians enrichment and educational events to help address a variety of social and emotional issues pertaining to their children's development. The WPC works collaboratively with groups throughout the community, to ensure we address the right topics at the right time. We are grateful for the support from the Westford Public Schools, the Westford Health Department, the Roudenbush Community Center, the Westford Elementary PTO, and the Westford Middle School PTO. To learn more about the organization, contact WPC President Mary Anne Seraphin at mseraphin@comcast.net.

Are You And Your Kids Feeling Overwhelmed?

So many of us spend our time rushing around, taking little or no time for just being. We – adults and children – are overbooked, overloaded, and anxious. Stressed out parents and caregivers can unintentionally create stressed out kids. Dr. Christopher Willard, a psychotherapist at Tufts University (and in private practice), comes to Westford Thursday, April 2, to present Child’s Mind: Mindfulness Practices To Help Our Children Be More Focused, Calm, and Relaxed. Dr. Willard will provide an overview of mindfulness and meditation techniques designed to empower children and adults. He teaches parents and kids that confidence and power come from the ability to be aware of and comfortable with ourselves and our surroundings.

Dr. Willard’s talk will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Stony Brook Middle School, 9 Farmer Way, Westford, MA. The event is free and open to the public through the generosity of the Westford Parent Connection’s many sponsors.
