Our friends over at Barton Hills Elementary have invited us to a presentation Tuesday night! Here is their message:
We are very excited to present Kirsten Nottleson and her presentation “Nurturing Boys”. Mrs. Nottleson will present on Tuesday, October 17th at 6pm.
Kirsten Nottleson, a parent of 18 and 12-year-old Barton Hills alumni boys, has been working as a parent educator, supporting families since 1993. Her mission is to help parents understand their children better and add playfulness to their family life in order to parent more consciously and effectively. She loves teaching all kinds of workshops, especially ones that involve Play, Pillow Fights, and Wrestling. See more at HandinHandWorkshops.com
During this insightful class and Q & A, Kirsten will…
- Paint a picture of the society our boys are being raised in and the pressure they feel to live within a restrictive and often harsh “boy code.”
- How this pressure directly impacts their emotions and behavior sometimes causing them to be aggressive, have unpredictable outbursts, and not be able to “perform” well at school and at home.
- Provide game-changing tools that you can use to help your boys ability to have better relationships with friends and family, pay attention, cooperate, and resolve conflicts.

Our amazing PTA Board is even proving childcare so that more families may attend! Just sign your child in the night of the event. Childcare can only accommodate school-age children. Younger (quiet) children may accompany their parents to the presentation. We suggest tipping the childcare providers $5 per child.

We look forward to seeing you there!
