Bring the family for Game Night

Chessboard with piecesThe Atlantic featured an article last year which reported

some of [your] family’s favorite games are educational tools in disguise. Dr. Bill Hudenko, child psychologist and assistant professor of psychiatry at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine, uses board games in his practice to diagnose and strengthen [...] much-touted executive function skills. He also encourages parents to play these games with their children at home.

To help tap in to building executive and fun having skills, we are hosting a Family Game Night, set for 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 29.

The event will feature a variety of traditional games and perhaps some that will become new favorite for families.

All ages are welcome, and registration is not required in advance to attend. 

And, you can read the most recent issue of the Atlantic online, via our Flipster digital magazine service.
