Family Resource Center hosts social worker

Bert Allain, a licensed social worker, will talk about the skills parents need to help children overcome the fear of failing during an April 16 presentation at the Literacy and Technology Center in Walker.

All too often children learn entitlement from the society and get caught up in comparing themselves to others. This comparison often leads to the fear that they are not quite good enough, fear of not being accepted or fear of failing. That fear keeps some children from trying anything new.

Allain will share the skills parents need to help their children overcome those fears.

The program, set from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., is hosted by the Family Resource Center.

To RSVP, email Jennifer. or call (225) 667-1098.
