What we're about
Parenting is such an amazing adventure! In this informal group, we will explore and talk about challenges, opportunities, and discoveries along the way. Our aim is after each MeetUp, you take home a parenting tip, strategy, or idea you can implement immediately. Part presentation/part group discussion. Topics may include:
• Co-Parenting Anxiety/depression
• Internet Safety and creating healthy digital citizens
• Building self-esteem in our children
• Positive discipline
Parenting Enrichment! will cover topics relevant to parents of preschoolers through children in middle/high school. ALL parents --- single /sole, coupled, separated, divorced, married, LGBTQ, foster, grandparents are WELCOME!
