SNACCMS: Sports, Nature, Arts, Culture, Clubs, Music, Spirituality
To help promote positive parenting and the development of healthy children, the Family Law section of the Clallam County Bar Association brings you this list of child and parent-child activities in Clallam County. Neuroscience and psychology research confirms our parenting instincts: positive, relationship-oriented activities help grow children’s brains and optimize children’s abilities to manage their emotions, enhance their critical thinking skills, and enhance their ability to consider other peoples feelings and needs. SNACCMS activities build “moral fiber”, build strong healthy bodies, promote healthy respect and curiosity, and help kids stay on a positive living path.
Please send us your activities to post on this site (see below), and any feedback about programs. A list of current SNACCMS activities are at the bottom of this page. Information about parenting education in Clallam County is listed here.

PLEASE MAKE SUBMISSIONS
Any activity that is consistent with the SNACCMS concept can be posted here. Please send us your information in a style consistent with the other posts here. Submissions should be brief, factual, and include available dates (including year), contact information, and activity costs. ClallamCountyBar.com does not have the staffing resources to track down or link to every SNACCMS activity, so we are counting on you to help fill out and keep this list current. This page is managed by the law office of Mark K. Baumann. Send your submissions to office @ markbaumann.com (cut and paste this email and remove the spaces before and after the @ symbol, this helps us reduce spam).
We are grateful for SNACCMS contributions from Vanessa Ridgway, Diana Velasco, and Amanda Hall.
(SNACCMS was created by Mark Baumann and is a component of his Integrative Client Counseling Institute (ICCI). For more information: http://www.icc.institute. The acronym is intended to capture in a simple way the many activities that promote positive neural development in children. If you have a suggestion for a better acronym, please let us know. Mr. Baumann is available for presentations about the neuroscience of childhood development and attachment theory.)
