Parent and Child

Parenting Post-Pandemic

Okay! We're back to school in a completely different world. Our kids are getting COVID…which is scary, dramatically more challenging than other illnesses, and apparently everyone around us wants to figure out how we brought it on ourselves. We’re stressed to the max even when our kids are healthy. They’re stressed, too. Daycare is unreliable. Traffic is back to crazy. Ack!


In this class, we’ll take long step back. We’ll breathe. We’ll think about priorities. And we’ll come up with some solid solutions to build resilience, happiness, and calm in our families. Yes, you do have time. Come.



Tuesdays, noon-1:30, beginning September 20

Class 1: Support and Priorities - September 20 

Class 2: Building Happiness - September 27

Class 3: Combating Negative Emotions - October 4

Class 4: Effective, Easy, Positive Discipline - October 11

Class 5: Sibling Problem-Solving - October 18

Cost: Free
