Why I Love Presenting!

Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, R. Psych.

This past weekend I went out to Merritt, BC to present a workshop on Parenting the Energetic Child – as always the attendees were an inspiration and a joy to spend the day with! My amazing host – Lynn Snook – the regional advisor to the Infant Development Program in that area for a long while and a wonderful leader in this province in terms of how we support young children. She also is an angel who came and met me in Hope so I didn’t have to drive the snowy Coquihalla for which I am beyond grateful!! The Civic Center was all decked out for the holidays as Merritt was busy gettting ready for its annual Christmas parade and lighting festival this weekend. Best part of doing these workshops is seeing all this wonderful communities! And at my workshop, there were many very lovely particpants (a group of about 100). Amongst them, 3 gorgeous kiddos – the littlest participants of the day who provided some in-room inspiration for us all to focus on.
