Laguna Beach PTA Coffee Break presents PLAYFUL PARENTING: a Bold Way to Nurture Close Connections and Solve Behavior Problems , 8:15 to 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, January 20, at the Surf and Sand Hotel, Laguna Beach. Cost is $5 for coffee & muffins. Children of all ages have an ongoing need for connectedness, security and attachment; playful interaction with parents is an important way to develop such bonds. Through play, parents can help their kids gain greater confidence, express bottled up or difficult feelings, recover from daily emotional upheavals, negotiate agreements, express love and--not least--have fun.   Playful Parenting, developed by Dr. Larry Cohen, gives parents the tools they need to make interactions with children more fun, foster clearer communication and a stronger connection between parent and child, and offer an alternative discipline approach rather than the typical punitive or permissive models.

I read with great enthusiasm the council?s approved ?Third Thursday?s Hospitality Night,? and the closure of the west end of Forest Avenue(?Businesses to be bolstered,? March 27). This is a great beta test of how the city might look and function with a permanent pedestrian mall. This could become our de facto town square, a nexus for community interaction and celebration ? and a boon to downtown merchants. Just imagine how beautiful the block would look without the cars blocking the sight lines.

A variety of art elements, from plein-air painting to sculpture to multimedia, are featured at the new Nix Nature Center, which will have its debut Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The nature center's theme, "Full Circle," is also the name of a sizable mural, created by Laguna College of Art & Design students. The mural's designer, Katy Betz, graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the college earlier this year. She was one of many students to submit a design for the project two years ago to teacher Mia Tavonatti.

The fifth annual World Hunger Bowl is coming to Laguna Beach on Wednesday. The fundraiser will offer a soup tasting, live music and a silent auction, with all proceeds going to Collaborative Courts Foundation Homeless Outreach Program and the homeless community of Laguna Beach.

Kathryn Turner was first sworn in to the Laguna Beach Unified School District Board of Education the day before the Orange County bankruptcy in 1994. Since those uncertain days, she has helped "right the ship" as the district itself faced financial collapse. She has been an integral player in the growth of the Quest for Excellence Committee, which continues to create an educational experience that supports the "whole child." Now she is eager to spend her third term focusing on the quality of education, but not without keeping an eye on the full slate of construction projects at schools.

DISCOVER YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY They're sunny! They're shiny! They're the library's good fortune this summer, the Sunshine Readers! The library is especially pleased this July and August to be graced with the enthusiasm and talents of these young storytelling sensations from the Laguna branch of the National Charity League. Led by local shining star herself, Julia Johnson, the Sunshine Readers present a fun and lively preschool story time at 11 a.m. each Tuesday morning through Aug. 13. Be sure to make the library a weekly Tuesday morning stop for the best in kid lit. After being enthralled by our Sunshine Readers, we heartily suggest a relaxing beachside lunch followed by a long siesta because there's more happening at the library on Tuesday evenings that you'll want to enjoy.
