Parenting Workshops

Parenting is Hard Work!

Managing schedules, balancing work and family, coping with new stages and behaviors…. All of this can be exhausting and challenging. Most parents sincerely want to do their best, but it can be confusing with all of the competing messages out there. And who has time to read every book or website?
