Parenting Workshop at Campbell Middle Tackles Bullying, Violence in Schools

Cupertino-based West Valley Community Services, along with Campbell Union School District, are offering a parenting workshop tonight.

Children, parents and teachers have a lot to deal with these days. Bullying and violence are realities that touch even the best schools.

, in conjunction with Cupertino-based West Valley Community Services, will host a parenting workshop Wednesday night to discuss ways to teach children to cope and move past these types of behaviors in a positive way.

"Escalating violence in our communities and in our schools has taken a tremendous toll on the level of trust we have for others, on our willingness to help those in need, and on our ability to cope with the common stress of daily life," says speaker Christopher Glover, in a release. "As a result, the importance of teaching children prosocial skills such as kindness, caring, generosity, respect, empathy, etc., has perhaps never been greater."

The workshop is open to parents within Campbell Union School District and is from 6:30-8 p.m. at the cafeteria, 295 Cherry Lane.

Although registration is not required, it is encouraged, so organizers will know how many tables and chairs to set up.

To register, contact Marisol Vargas, parent workshop coordinator, at 408-255-8033, ext. 151, or marisolv@wvcommunityservices.org.
