Introduction to “1-2-3 Magic” Offered to Local Families

Families have an opportunity to learn about an evidence-based discipline program that uses straightforward methods for managing child behavior on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018 at Page Middle School. The event includes a meal for families at 5:30 pm, sponsored by Five Rivers Women’s Club, with the seminar beginning at 6:00.
The seminar will be facilitated by Jennifer Tingley, a Nationally Certified School Psychologist who currently serves as the Special Education Coordinator for Gloucester County Public Schools. She has a doctorate in educational administration and served as a school psychologist for 17 years. She’s also a parent of two daughters who enjoys facilitating parent groups.
Based on feedback from participants, upcoming seminars will focus on specific behaviors such as whining, sibling rivalry, talking back, and defiance. Participants can attend as many or as few as they deem appropriate or convenient.
The program is sponsored by Gloucester Community Engagement and Gloucester County Public Schools. Space is limited and reservations should be made by Oct. 8. To reserve a space, contact Valerie Lewis, Engagement Coordinator, at 804-693-0654 or
