How to Teach Children Responsibility
Responsibility is the process of making choices and accepting the consequences of those choices. If the consequence is positive, then children have a good model for making a similar choice in the future. If the consequence is negative, then they know better how to choose next time and avoid the same consequences. Either way, they learn and grow.

Seven Strategies for Communicating with Children

What can we do to improve communication—specifically, with our children?  Yes, communication is so very complicated and multi-faceted. The messages we communicate involve much more than just what we say to our children. In fact, every single message we send involves three channels: 1) words, 2) tone, and 3) body language (i.e., hand gestures, proximity, and facial expressions). When all three channels carry the same message, the communication is clear and powerful. The following strategies can help us build a set of foundational skills that model respect, encourage cooperation and support our children in solving problems.

24th Annual Centers' Classic Golf Tournament Rescheduled

Centers Golf Classic Logo for WebThe 24th Annual Centers Classic Golf Tournament, presented by Dover Dixon Horne, will be held on Monday, November 10th at Pleasant Valley Country Club. Due to severe storms the original date of October 13th was cancelled.

Centers’ Classic is a premier Central Arkansas golf tournament that will feature a full day of fun, food and fellowship with two 18 hole scrambles (4 man team), both morning and afternoon flights available. Thanks to your past support, this event has grown each year. Last year, we hosted the largest single shot gun start of any tournament held at PVCC, with over 180 golfers in attendance, raising $60,000 to benefit the children and families we serve. We’re excited to build on our success. It would be an honor to have your involvement in support of our kids.

For volunteer information, to register your 4 man team and/or reserve your hole sponsorship, call Chris Shenep in The Centers’ Foundation at (501) 666-9436 ext 3328.

Special thanks to tournament chairman Matt Buchanan and our many sponsors!
