Routine observations to affect parenting program

The Raising a Thinking Child series is reemerging in Door County this summer both in-person and virtually, which also coincides with kids getting back to more normal patterns. With caregivers and children going through numerous changes in the past year, Chad Welch, a Community Impact Coordinator for the United Way of Door County, notes that there are adjustments on the teaching end of the course as well.


Welch says programs like this will look different this year, based on common questions from parents on how to keep kids engaged in school and in a routine. 



Welch says social adjustments appear to be one of the most evident challenges for kids he sees. He says a lot of kids adapted well to how little they got to interact with peers in the past, but that was not seen across the board. Raising a Thinking Child is a long-running event that is an evidence-based parenting program that helps the kids with decision making skills. More details on the program can be found here.
