Collaborative Problem Solving Courses for Parents Presented by OOS Churches

Does telling your child to “calm down” just ratchet up the stress? Are you wondering how to set appropriate parental boundaries? Could you brush up on your parental problem-solving skills? 

In February 2019 area churches, including Sunnyside Wesleyan, Southminster United, Trinity Anglican, and St. Margaret Mary Catholic, will join together to host a series of four parenting workshops led by respected registered occupational therapist Denise De Laat and her partner Dr. Phil Ritchie, a psychologist. Both have served the community through the school system, at CHEO, and in private practice. The free sessions will be held on Tuesdays (Feb 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2019) from 7-8:30 pm will focus on the Collaborative Problem Solving Method (CPS) and are open to parents and guardians of children and youth in Old Ottawa South.

Green Streets Can Calm Traffic

Recent articles have drawn attention to the unattractive trees and gardens on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South and have raised the question — whose job is it to remedy this situation?

The Old Ottawa South Traffic and Safety Committee, chaired by Winnie Pietrykowski, has also asked that question.  The Traffic Committee, in addition to following up on the OOS Traffic Survey with the City officials and sitting on the Lansdowne Traffic Monitoring Operations Committee (LTMOC) has acted on the notion that greener streets can play a role in encouraging more respectful and safe driving by those passing through our community.  In this regard, a member of the Traffic Committee has become engaged with the Sunnyside Avenue Traffic Calming and Green Streets Project.
