Parenting Circle with Maria Fahrner
May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Many parents today are raising children without the benefit of extended family nearby, or in ways different from how they were raised. We are also faced with a rapidly changing landscape of technology. Childhood is very different from even twenty years ago with the prevalence of cell phones, iPads, and Social Media.
In our Parenting Circle we will explore parenting through the ages, with an emphasis on healthy and developmentally appropriate childhood activities, discussion of parent self-care, strengthening of the will, and how to foster healthy family boundaries.
-These Parenting Circles are available for FREE.
-Pre-registration is recommended as space is limited.
-Infants-in-arms are welcome to attend.
Upcoming Parenting Circle Topics:
April 18: Childhood Matters– Information and discussion on developmentally appropriate activities and family life for children ages 6 months – 10 years.
May 16: Parent Care– When Mamas and Papas are doing well, the family thrives. Self-care practices and activities for increasing energy and joy in everyday experiences.
June 20: Technology: Tool or Tyrant– A look at simplifying daily rhythm, strengthening boundaries, and reducing screen time for children.
