On Your Own and Ok is a  workshop helps to build skills, maturity,
and confidence to safely stay home alone.
Topics discussed with your child include:
• Ideas for rules to have in place when your child is home alone.
• Setting a basic schedule you want your child to follow when home alone.
• Knowing your child’s procedure if someone comes to the door when you’re gone.
• Ideas for managing the ever-present squabbles that occur between siblings.
This workshop does not certify your child is ready to be home alone. You must make that decision as a family. Your child will leave our workday with a family workbook to guide you through discussing rules and expectations together. This will be held at the Palo Alto County Extension Office in the basement meeting room on Sat. April 22 from 9am to 2pm. Cost is $25 to cover supplies and meals. To register call the Palo Alto County Extension Office 712-852-2865 or email angies@iastate.edu. This class is open to all 3rd graders and up.
