Chit-Chat's 6th Birthday Magic Show & Potluck April 29

FSN News:


The community is invited to celebrate the 6th birthday of Chit-Chat & Change (Diapers) with a magic show, cake and potluck, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 29 at the Family Strengths Network (FSN), 3450 Orange St. Bring a dish to share and a picnic blanket to sit on to watch the show featuring magician New Mexico Shadowhandz.

 

Chit-Chat & Change (Diapers) is a program of FSN that engages parents and caregivers and their young children. Through facilitated discussions, social groups, field trips, family dinner events, guest speakers and workshops, it builds thriving networks of social support, creates opportunities for reflective parenting and connects families to the larger community and its resources.

 

Chit-Chat would not be what it is without all of the incredible people who have showed up, contributed their time, ideas and interests and supported one another through the years.

 

Terra Hite started hosting Chit-Chat & Change (Diapers) groups at FSN six years ago. Even though no one attended the first session and the first four months were sporadically attended, Hite persevered and eventually four parents came with their kids. Since then Chit-Chat has done nothing but grow. There are now more than 450 subscribers to Chit-Chat’s weekly newsletter. All of Chit-Chat’s activities stem from community expressed needs and discussion.

 

Chit-Chat brings a lot of advantages to the community. It supports the well-being and success of children within the context of their families. It has made it possible for young families to meet and make good friends in this very transient community. Families with young children move here for job opportunities and are often uprooted from their support networks at a time when they are most important. Several people have said they didn’t want to be here, they only came here for their spouse's job however through Chit-Chat they have made true friends and now want to stay.
