POTEAU–The Pervasive Parenting Sibshop meeting for September is scheduled for Sept. 16. This meeting is designed to help children in eastern Oklahoma cope with the stress of living with a sibling with special needs.
Meetings are held monthly throughout the area, and are open to children ages 6 to 15.
The meeting will be held at the Pervasive Parenting Center on the Poteau campus of Carl Albert State College, 1507 S. McKenna, Technical Occupational Building, Suite 502. The workshop will be from 4 to 6 p.m.
This is a free service and is open to siblings of children with any disability.
The children participate in games, crafts and other activities throughout the day. They are also served a snack and get to socialize with other children who are going through similar issues. The games are designed to be fun as well as allow them to open up about the problems they may have at home. It also gives them a chance to see the positive sides of having a sibling with a disability.
Sibshop is a national program created by Don Meyer as part of the Sibling Support Project. There are currently 340 Sibshops in eight countries.
