Is your child acting out? Talk to experts at free Newberg event

On Wednesday, Feb. 25, Swindells Resource Center will partner with George Fox University’s School of Education to host a discussion with two experts in youth behavioral challenges. Parents, your child’s bad behavior is trying to tell you something. Come find out what that is at this free event. 

Expect to cover topics such as what "triggers” behaviors, what behaviors might look like, what your child is getting out of the behavior, and strategies to change behavior. 

Through a variety of stories as examples to help illustrate the basic principles of behavior, the hope is that you leave looking at behaviors from a different perspective.
