HR Items of Interest
7.) When Both Parents Work
10:30 a.m. Feb. 21, Room 103A, Human Resources Building, 1980 Arthur St., Belknap Campus

Parents work more to afford better clothes, more food and a nicer home, which is all, eventually, for your children. However, this effort is ultimately what takes you away from your child. In this workshop, we will explore the challenges of having two working parents managing the juggling act of work, school schedules, extracurricular activities, etc. Another topic to be examined is the breakdown in communication that often occurs when deciding which parent is responsible for which activity.
Additional Information: Registration. Email questions to staff development.
