Workshop on parenting a strong-willed child to be held at Botetourt

Parenting a strong-willed child is the topic of a parent workshop scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 14, in the Botetourt Elementary School library. The workshop begins with a quick pizza dinner at 6 p.m. followed by the workshop from 6:15 to 7 o’clock. Child care can be provided with reservations.

Strong-willed children are spirited and courageous and a challenge to parent, a release said. They want to learn things for themselves rather than accepting what others say, so they test the limits over and over.

The workshop is limited to 30 participants and child care can be accommodated with registration by Jan. 10. To reserve a space, contact Valerie Lewis at or 804-693-0654. 

The workshop will be facilitated by Jen...
