Families First Parenting Workshops

Helping your child try new things and bounce back from daily challenges

For parents of children aged 4 to 10 years

A new year can be a tricky time for families. Whether little ones are having new experiences or kids are returning to their regular school friends, and activities, there is a lot on everyone’s minds.

Back to school can also bring forth both familiar and  brand-new feelings of fear, anxiety, and stress for families. Will my kids enjoy their weekly routine? Will they handle the winter weather? Am I encouraging them enough to try new things? Or pushing too hard? When do I let them figure things out for themselves? When do they need a helping hand?

Come explore ways of supporting your child to grow and thrive this year, collect stories and ideas to help them try new things and work through some of life’s daily challenges.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 26, 6:30 p.m.

Presenters: Lisa Inhat, MA, RP and Chiara Frigeni MEd, RP

Workshop will be run on a videoconferencing platform.
