EYEGLASSES FOR CHARITY

Lions clubs collect eyeglasses for near- and far-sighted kids and adults in developing nations, who can not afford to buy glasses themselves. Imagine that you are in school, but you can not learn because it is difficult to read. Or imagine not being able to work to the best of your ability, because you can't see clearly.
Starting this week, we will be collecting eyeglasses in the main office at Chatsworth to bring the gift of better eyesight to people in developing nations. We will be collecting through the month of February.

Kindness Rocks!

We wanted to let the Chatsworth community in on a special project we will be working on in the Spring.  It is called the “Kindness Rocks” Project. We have attached the link listed below with examples and details on this project. The Kindness Rock project has been going on all over the world for quite some time now. It encourages people to create inspirational rocks and leave them for others to find. The idea behind The Kindness Rocks Project, is a pay-it-forward service project created in hopes of sparking joy in people’s everyday lives.

Home

We are hoping that after the children and staff create their own “Chatsworth Kindness rocks”, they will then be spread out all around Chatsworth school grounds as well as around the town of Larchmont!
Here is where we need your help!! We are hoping to start collecting rocks this winter so we will have enough for all the children to make their design on in the Spring.  The rocks need to have a smooth surface so students can paint on them (For ex: river rocks used for landscaping) and  3″ to 5″ size works best!!! There will be a large box located near the Chatsworth greeter where you can drop off your rock donation!
Thank you as always for your constant support!
“One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day… outlook ….life!”

COFFEE CLUTCH SERIES: HOW TO GET THIS PARENTING JOB “RIGHT”

Over the course of the last five years, we have given at least two dozen talks about parenting and all its trials and tribulations in this era and this community.
Along the way, we have identified seven “attitudes” that we (as psychologists AND parents) believe promote skillful parenting. Please join Alan Dienstag, PsyD and Katie Sawyer, PhD from LMCCC on Wednesday February 14th from 9:15 until 10:30am for what we hope will be a very useful attitude adjustment for us parents as we continue on this journey. Location: room 104. To register please click here.
