New Early Childhood Parenting Group forming

Are you stressed by parenting challenges? Are you wondering how to best raise a confident and resilient child? Do you feel alone as a parent? 

You might be interested in joining a new parenting group for parents of children ages 0-5. In a small group environment of 5 to 8 parents we will explore parenting challenges and help you regain confidence in your parenting skills.

This group will focus on developing an understanding of the thoughts and feelings that underlie the interactions between you and your child. The capacity to reflect on your own and your child’s experience, lies at the heart of effective parenting. Contemporary research has demonstrated that developing the capacity to reflect is a valuable way to help parents strengthen relationships with their children and support healthy cognitive and social-emotional development.

The group will meet on Thursdays from 9:30 until 11:00 am. Drop in: $20. Commitment to 6 sessions: $90.
