Presenter – Kim Skidmore

Kim Skidmore is an experienced workshop presenter who has worked with the Saskatchewan Foster Families Association and with children with FASD. She is the proud Mom of 17 children, ages 4-41, who have joined the family via birth, adoption, foster care and guardianship orders (PSI). The majority of Kim’s children have special needs. Kim is a strong advocate for her children and firmly believes parenting should be less stressful and more fun – not only for the parents but for the children as well.

Session 1: Friday 7:00 pm

Meet Kim and Her Family

Kim will introduce her family and share some of her experiences as the Mom of many children with special needs.

This will be an interactive session with participants sharing some of their parenting experiences.

Session 2: Saturday 8:30-10:00

Challenging Behaviours…Now What Do I Do?

Parenting children with challenging behaviours can leave even the most seasoned parents frustrated and exhausted. Kim will address a range of behaviours from toilet training to lying and share strategies she has used that helped her children (and her) maintain their dignity.

Session 3: 10:30-12:00

Strategies That Have Worked For Me

From placemats to transitional objects Kim will share strategies she uses with her children to guide them towards many successes each and every day.

Session 4: Saturday 1:30-3:00

The Importance of Now

Kim will wrap up her sessions with a summary of what 41 years of parenting has taught her.
