On Thursday, June 18, the class is Staying Home Alone. This parent-child class, led by a Children’s Hospital facilitator, will help parents and children determine the child’s readiness – physically, mentally and emotionally – to stay home by themselves and help prepare them for this experience.

The class will meet from 6:30-8 p.m. June 18 in the cafeteria meeting rooms. The cost is $25 per family and pre-registration is required by calling 314-454-5437 or toll-free 800-678-5437.
