YWCA Parent Awareness will offer screenings of two films, "Split: Divorce through Kids' Eyes" and "What Every Girl Wants to Know."

"Split" will be shown Tuesday, April 29, at 7 p.m. in the community room of the Darien Library, which is a co-sponsor. A discussion, facilitated by Ed Moran, senior social worker and community educator at Family Centers in Darien, will follow. The documentary gives the child's perspective on divorce, and features a diverse group of children, ranging in age from 6 to 12, from divorced families, sharing honestly about their experiences.

"What Every Girl Wants to Know," co-sponsored by Holmes Elementary School, will be screened Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. at the Depot, 25 Heights Road.

After the film, Diane Frankel-Gramelis, the director of education at Milford Hospital, will lead a discussion for mothers and daughters on the physical and emotional changes of puberty. The workshop will also provide a starting point for further discussions about this sensitive topic.

Admission is free, but registration is recommended. Visit www.ywcadariennorwalk.org. For information, call 203-655-2535.

Frankel-Gramelis earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Southern Connecticut State University. At SCSU as a part-time health educator, she presents workshops on stress reduction and health-related strategies.
