CIC invites all parents and caregivers to this informative event. Two of our most experienced instructors will present practical suggestions for how you can encourage motivation and a growth mindset in children. Following these brief presentations there will be ample time for questions, answers, and discussions where you might compare notes with other parents and offer your own suggestions.
