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. During this surreal pandemic, ALL presentations are online via Zoom. Topics may include:
• Helping children and siblings build friendships
• Co-Parenting as a team (married or separated)
• Internet Safety and Parenting in the Digital Age
• Building Self-esteem in our Children
• Positive discipline and learning what is your discipline style?
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!
