NEOSHO -- Crowder College hosted a conference Saturday designed to enrich the lives of children and youth. There were several presentations from experienced professionals, including child development, self esteem in young people and child communication. The program was put together by Crowder's social science and trio programs. Organizers say the information could help any family, not just those with problems. This was Crowder's first family conference, but organizers say it is something they plan to do every year.
