Two series to begin at Parents Place

Parents Place has two workshop series in the works for children and parents of school-aged children.

The first begins Wednesday, Feb. 15 for parents of school-aged children, ages 5 to 12. The six-week series covers such topics as handling school stress, dealing with math phobia and preparing for parent-teacher conferences. All workshops are from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and are $20 per workshop, $100 for all six.

The second series is for children who have difficulty with social interactions. Two playgroups are forming for children ages 3 to 4 and 5 to 6 and each goes for 10 weeks. Groups are facilitated by two therapists and participation is mandatory in all 10 sessions. The group is tentatively set to begin in March.

Both groups meet at Parents Place, 1710 Scott St., S.F. For information, call Amy Cooper at (415) 359-2461 or visit
