Compassionate Parenting Tools

On this day, we will discuss: Practice, Celebration and Mourning

In this ten-week rotating curriculum, we’ll explore family patterns, how to constructively handle emotions, brain & child development as well as learn helpful tools & problem-solving techniques to foster a deeper parent-child relationship. The class environment will provide an amazing support system with other parents who understand the complexities of parenting, while also encouraging you as you take your next steps in parenting.

This class is ongoing. If you miss a particular topic, it will be offered again. Drop-ins are welcome.

CHILDCARE SERVICES AVAILABLE at no additional cost!
