Happy New Year!

At least through June, Central API meeting days are changing from third Wednesdays to FIRST TUESDAYS!  We will also be meeting every month instead of alternating months with the South API group.  We will try to keep a balance between open forum discussions and topic-driven ones.

The location and time remains the same; Yarborough Library (2200 Hancock Drive, 78731) from 10:15 until noon.

We hope to see you soon!

October Meeting – Nonviolent Communication

Come join us this Wednesday (10:15 until noon at the Yarborough Library) as Bettina Vaello, pediatrician and homeschooling mama, presents the topic of Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

NVC is a style of communication initially developed in the 1960’s by Marshall Rosenberg while he was working with civil rights activists, college students, and administrators.  Since then, NVC has been more deeply cultivated and sought out by many who wish to increase their communication and conflict resolution skills, including parents.  Bettina has also created a small non-profit community centered around mindfulness, called the Creative Village Family Centre, and will be happy to share more information on how to get connected to the Centre’s events.

As always, babies, children, and other interested participants are welcome.  Although we meet in a library, snacks are permitted in the library meeting room, so please plan accordingly to meet your and your family’s needs.  We look forward to seeing you!

February Meeting Announcement

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead

Normally we have a Central API meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of every other month (starting February), but this month we would like to support a very important event in lieu of our normal meeting format.

Our rights as nursing mothers are very important and we invite you to come out to this event at the Capitol on Wednesday the 18th to support those rights.

You can find the information at the Facebook event page and on the Texas Breastfeeding Coalition’s website.

The entire event is from 9 am – 5 pm, so feel free to drop in as it works for your schedule.

We hope to see you there!
