Parenting Workshops for October

Hello Community,

In October we have 2 really wonderful and helpful workshops for parents, caregivers and service providers. Both of these workshops give real strategies that come from our team of 20+ parents who have lived experience with their own children. 

(1) Building Connection with Our Kids When It Feels Impossible: Join us as we listen to FamilySmart’s Parent Peer Support Workers Tammy and Diane have an honest conversation about what it is like as a parent or caregiver who is struggling to connect with their kids. They will share strategies to build, and rebuild, connections even when it is complex. Come together with other families to watch this one hour video presentation followed by a 30 minute facilitated discussion by a FamilySmart Parent Peer Support Worker.
