The importance of engaging adults in the vision of how we help children can not be overlooked.
At the Meeting House we continually work to educate and advance the cause of beneficial social and emotional development among both parents and professionals. In addition to special events like our symposiums, the following links to thought pieces are a sample of the breadth of insight that our team has written about, or compiled, to help achieve our thought leadership goals.
This article index of our Meeting House postings provides a reference for insight and ideas on social emotional and development. Drawing on topics ranging from play and stress to community and culture, we believe that “The Only Way To Have A Friend Is To Be One” and hope that our recommendations will illuminate discussion to create Fun, Friendship & Community.
