The Family and Children’s Services Holiday Star program kicks off this year with the hope of supporting more than 50 young adults between the ages of 16 and 21.
These are youth and young adults who live independently, and, in some cases, include children of their own.
Older teens and young adults are often a forgotten group. Each has faced their own personal struggle related to abuse or neglect, but each one shows resilience and character as they embark on independence.
Positive parenting booklet and Literature Review
Parents are sometimes faced with the dilemma of: Should I spank my kids and if I do what are the implications for my child? Recent research has highlighted the negative effects on children when their parents use corporal punishment on them.
The Centre for Research and Education on Violence against Women and Children conducted a literature review on the latest research regarding the impact of using corporal punishment on children. Using this information, the Centre has worked collaboratively with Thames Valley District School Board, London District Catholic School Board and FACS to create this new resource for parents, educators and service providers in Elgin County.
