So February has some important dates to remember:
Valentines Day (14th)
Bartenders’ Ball (11th- show up to support this year’s recipient CAPTAIN Youth and Family Services)
Presidents’ Day (20th …and start of a school break for many)…
and of course
Groundhog Day (2nd… we haven’t really had winter yet, but I’d be OK with an early spring).
So tomorrow we’ll be talking about whether the groundhog predicts an early spring or more winter, but here’s something to think about all month long. It’s Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Talk to your kids about signs of abuse in a relationship… and what constitutes a health relationship. At Wellspring, we want everyone to have healthy relationships. Sometimes it’s confusing to discern when everyday behaviors cross the line into controlling. This month we’ll be sharing some tools to increase awareness, start the conversation, and give you some resources if needed. Let’s start with discussing boundaries and consent.
