Preparing kids for success in school

A UBC professor specializing in human development, learning and culture will be the keynote speaker at a parent presentation, sponsored by the Southside Family of Schools.

The event slated for Tuesday, March 14 from 6:45 to 8:30 p.m. at Kilmer elementary will explain the difference between self-regulation and self-control and how it can enable students to be more independent, successful learners. Dr. Perry will also discuss strategies for supporting children's success in school.
