Lake Erie Nature & Science Center helps to understand the preschooler’s perspective

Dr. Meghan Barlow brings her experience and expertise in pediatric psychology to Lake Erie Nature & Science Center on Oct. 15.

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center extends an invitation for "Understanding the Preschooler’s Perspective: Eating, Sleeping and Going Potty."

Teece Lester, preschool coordinator at the Center, says, “We were seeing so many parents throwing their hands up in frustration over these activities. They’re wondering why their preschooler won’t do these things how they want, or when they want, or where they want. It can be challenging for everyone involved and we wanted to provide some support.”

So Lester and the Center partnered with Dr. Meghan Barlow to offer an informal presentation on Oct. 15 at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, 28728 Wolf Road. Dr. Barlow, a pediatric psychologist, will talk about understanding these challenges, exploring strategies for handling problems and avoiding conflict, discovering helpful resources and using this information to encourage your children to thrive.

Dr. Barlow has previously paired with the Center for a presentation in March 2015 which was attended by over 100 local parents and caregivers.

There is no charge for this program but attendees are asked to register in advance to secure their seat. This can be done through or by calling the Lake Erie Nature & Science Center at 440-871-2900.
