Pretend City is one of my favorite places in Orange County to take the kids.
Not only do they have fantastic growing and learning opportunities for kids, but they have great educational classes for parents too.
Next week, on of my favorite parenting doctors, Dr. Ann Corwin, along with other wonderful doctors are coming together to discuss the Power of Play.
In an age where TV, computer and cell phone screens are transforming the way grown-ups and children live, we must not forget the most fundamental way we learn – play. So, try to silence those cell phones and join our panel of experts as they delve into unraveling the importance of play as a central role in healthy intellectual, social and emotional child development.
Our panel of experts:
•Dr. Ann Corwin, The Parenting Doctor
•Dr. Regina Lamourelle, Human Development Department Chair, Registered Nurse, Santiago Canyon College
•Nicole Hadley, CCLS, Child Life Specialist
•Elizabeth Sorensen, LCSW, Registered Play Therapist
I’m so excited for this event. If you live in the Orange County, CA, area, I hope you’ll pop by and hear what they have to say.
