Sibshops set for Feb. 11 in Claremore

Rogers County Fair Building

Want to have your child without special needs learn and be around others just like him or her who have a sibling with a special need? If so, make plans to attend the Feb. 11 Rogers County Sibshops in Claremore, from 10 a.m. - noon.

Led by Rogers County OSU Extenstion Family and Consumer Sciences educator, Sibshops is a time for your child without special needs to focus on them, have fun and learn ways to cope with their feelings. Dealing with a sibling can be one of the most annoying aspects of childhood.  However, it canalso lead to one of the most rewarding and influential relationships of our lives.

Sibshops is a program designed to provide peer support and education within a recreational setting for children ages 5-13 who have a sibling with a special need. This months' activities will revolve around the Valentine's Day theme. Penny is also a trained yoga instructor and provides yoga for young children. Past activities have included the appearance of Jerzy the Courthouse Dog and the Rogers County Sheriff's Office Mounted Patrol. This is a free program, and light snacks are provided.
